Free Public Talk - Comet Hunting in Singapore

There is a free public stargazing talk this coming Monday.

Topic: Comet Hunting in Singapore
Date: Monday, 18 March 2013
Time: 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Venue: Toa Payoh Public Library, Programme Zone, Level 1.
Admission is FREE. No pre-registration required. Latecomers are welcomed too!

I will talking about Comets - what they are, how to find them, how to see them and when is the next coming one. (Hint: It *may* be the Comet-of-the-Century which is also visible in Singapore!)

You will also learn how to read simple star charts and understand basic astronomical concepts.

*Weather permitting*, we may be conducting a live stargazing session at the open space outside the Toa Payoh Library. On that evening, a beautiful first quarter Moon, Jupiter and Aldebaran will form an interesting triangle in the western sky! 

You can enjoy the celestial wonders through our telescopes and even take photos of the Moon with your mobile phone through them.

So please bring your family and friends along and enjoy an entertaining evening at Toa Payoh Public Library this coming Monday. See you there!
