Christmas Telescope Workshop and Watch

Wednesday January 29th in AI Headquarters

 

 

This event will take place on Wednesday 29th 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 the MOON, VENUS (exceptionally close to NEPTUNE), URANUS & 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'.


MOON & PLANET WATCH TOO: We'll also have our own large telescopes in use should it be clear to show the general public Venus (exceptionally close to Neptune this week - see January magazine), the Moon and other objects to hopefully inspire them to join Astronomy Ireland.

It's all taking place at 7pm on Wednesday January 29th at our Headquarters (just off the M50)

Don't miss this FREE 'once a year only' event if you ever wanted to know how to use your telescope properly!

Free tea, coffee, bikkies, sweets (bring your own 'reusable cup' if you have one)

THERE IS NO CHARGE for this event and you do not nee to pre-book, just come along at 7pm regardless of weather and bring your own telescope if you want help assembling it or instructions on how to use it.
(We will have giant telescopes set up to do a viewing event as well, if clear, so non-telescope owners are very welcome!)

EVENING CLASSES FEB.5TH
This is also being held to promote our EVENING CLASSSES FOR BEGINNERS which take place exactly one week later.
Enrol TODAY here: www.astronomy.ie/class
