18 Jun 2020 Stargazing in the Summer Sky
Thu 18 Jun 2020 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
This is the second in a series of webinars taking the place of our usual workshop programme – watch this space for more events coming soon.
Join Nick Busby of Usk Astrological Society as he uses a full-screen planetarium with the Zoom platform to help us understand and be able to pass on to clients the wonders of our night sky (which is, of course, particularly spectacular in the Dark Skies area of the Brecon Beacons National Park).
Although it does not get very dark in the middle of summer there are still plenty of wonders to see in night sky, including most of the planets, the Milky Way, meteor showers and many deep sky objects. This talk will introduce beginners to star gazing and give tips on how to find and observe these objects. It will be assumed that the only equipment available is the human eye or at most a pair of binoculars.
