The first, ‘Stargazing LIVE in Northampton’ takes place at Delapre Abbey on 11th January 6-9pm. Meet at the main car park (NN4 8AW). There will be telescopes for the public to use. If clear there will be excellent views of the moon, Jupiter and some star clusters and galaxies. There will also be a live outdoor planetarium show and talks on what you can expect to see in the night sky, advice on starting out in astronomy and guidance if you are planning to buy a telescope. If the weather is poor, please use your judgement. Please dress warmly with thick soled shoes as it will get cold. Free, no need to book, just turn up.
BBC Stargazing LIVE events
The BBC is set to inspire a whole host of astronomers and stargazers to look to the skies this New Year in a season of events and programmes headed up by Prof. Brian Cox.
In January 2014, we will be hosting four Stargazing LIVE events in and around Northampton. Booking is not essential but please let us know if you are coming so that we can gauge numbers. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please dress up warmly as standing around for a couple of hours in January WILL be cold. Please wear a warm coat, hat and gloves and thick soled shoes. If you have your own binoculars or telescope, feel free to bring them along as well.
