Public Open Evening
Mansfield and Sutton Astronomical Society
Sherwood Observtory Coxmoor Road Sutton in Ashfield Notts NG 17 5LF
Sat Oct 28, 2017
Time: 1845hrs
Price: Adults (over 16) £5 under 16's £1 (under 16's must be accompanied by an adult)
We will be holding a public open evening on Saturday 28th October which is also “ 2017 International Observe the Moon Night.” A number of our telescopes will be exploring the Moon, taking in the wonders of its seas, oceans, mountains, craters and rugged landscape. There will be a series of Moon themed talks throughout the evening given by one of our members. There will also be Moon fact sheets and 2018 Moon calendars to take away. Besides the delight of looking at our only satellite, there will still be the opportunity to gaze out in to our glorious galaxy and behold the stars, constellations, and other celestial delights. Our main 24” computer guided telescope will be in action, plus other telescopes on our external pad. Bring your own binoculars for a “binocular tour” of the night sky. Members will be on hand to point out and guide you around the galaxy. Wrap up warm. Astronomy can be a very cold science. Please be aware that all viewing is weather dependent. As usual, we will have our radio astronomy kit switched on and you will be able to watch incoming meteors on the indoor monitor. You will also be able to listen to the “sounds of space.” There will be a childrens quiz, a “crater creator” for children, a computer space shuttle game (for children and "bigger children"), and the chance to win a prize in the “astrodraw.” Free onsite parking. Booking is not required. Refreshments and astronomy themed merchandise on sale. Disabled access to all areas (but please be aware that the main telescope is at the top of a spiral staircase).
