Upcoming Astronomy Events
As a service to our community, Sky & Telescope lists astronomy-related events, including star parties, observatory public nights, astronomy talks, and more. Star parties offer dark skies and astronomical fellowship and often cater to families and feature special activities for kids. Public nights give the general public a chance to view the sky through large telescopes, and public talks are a great place to learn the fundamentals of the science and the craft.
You’ll also see online events offered here.
And if you’d like free copies of Sky & Telescope‘s Let’s Go Stargazing flyer or door prizes for your next star party, you can fill out this form.
Rodney Buckland CBE and Prof David Rees - A virtual observing session with the Open University robotic telescope in Tenerife.
October 29, 2021
Tonight, we have a rare opportunity as Rodney Buckland and David Rees explain how we can have free access to the Open University robotic telescope situated under the clear dark skies of Tenerife.
And as a SPECIAL BONUS they have managed to book a slot so we can observe several stunning objects in real time. There will also be a backup plan in the unlikely event of technical problems with the telescopes or with UK weather turning up in Tenerife!
This will be a unique experience and a first for our Society.
Again, this will be a virtual presentation via Zoom.
Please note that our zoom presentations begin at 8 p.m. and members are advised to join from 7:45 p.m. onwards.
Non-members may participate for a donation of £3. Please contact: [email protected] at least 36 hours ahead of the meeting.
