The Night Sky
The Night Sky - Live
From the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge
Presented by the Cambridge Astronomical Association
The event is integrated with the Institute of Astronomy's public open night program and begins at 8pm following the indoor lecture which starts at 19:15 - see below for how to join.
The CAA team will give you a guided tour of the night sky, picking out a number of objects of interest via the array of telescopes which all link up to the large screens so that everyone in attendance can see at once.
We will have a selection of telescope with different types of camera linked up to stream detailed views of the moon and planets.
Along with several wider fields-of-view idea for seeking out Galaxies, Star Clusters and Nebulae.
In the event of cloud, we may give a short talk or planetarium style show of what we would have chased down for you if it had been clear!
and it is all absolutely free with no need to book unless you are bring a large group of more than six, in which case its best to speak to someone about it first!
