Moon Watch and Workshop 2019

Wednesday January 16th in AI Headquarters

 

 

This event will take place on Wednesday 16th January and will begin at 7pm at our Headquarters in Blanchardstown (just off the M50) For map and directions visit: www.astronomy.ie/map

Did you get a telescope for Christmas?
Or, at any stage in the past?
But don't know how to use it?

Once a year, after Christmas we'll pick one night when there is something fun to see ( We will be viewing MOON and other objects) and invite everyone to come along and be be shown how to use their telescope!


Whether it's cloudy or clear it does not matter for this 'workshop'.


POSSIBLE OTHER TARGETS:

If conditions allow we may also be able to show you the planet Mars and the 'Christmas Comet - Comet Wirtanen' which is now fading from view. But the main target will be the Moon which is an incredible sight up close in a powerful telescope.

APOLLO 11 - FIRST MOON LANDING

This July sees the 50th Anniversary of the first manned landing on the Moon. So this is the first of our events to celebrate this historic event. It is an important event as Neil Armstrong told us, quite proudly, that his family came from Co.Fermanagh. 

We have articles all about the Apollo Moon Landing in our magazine starting with the February issue, out this week.

PUBLIC LECTURE - FEB.11

We also have our first Apollo anniversary lecture in Dublin on Feb.11th - get tickets or the DVD of this talk now at: www.astronomy.ie/lecture201902.php

EVENING CLASS PROMOTION

It's at 7pm on Wednesday Jan 16 at our headquarters (just off the M50) on the above date.
Don't miss this FREE 'once a year only' event if you ever wanted to know how to use your telescope properly!
