Free Public Talk - Learn Basic Stargazing Skills

The next public talk I will be conducting is titled "Learn Basic Stargazing Skills".

Date: Monday, 17 June 2013
Time: 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Venue: Toa Payoh Public Library. Level 1 Programme Zone.

Admission is free. No pre-registration required. Late-comers also welcomed!

Participants will be taught practical stargazing skills they can use immediately after the talk and in the process understand astronomical concepts like light years, magnitude, naming of stars in constellations, apparent size of objects, ...etc.

A3-size printed star maps will also be distributed.

The last part of the talk will be about how the Super Moon of 2013! Happening on full moon this coming Sunday 23 June.

Weather permitting, during/after the talk, they will be an impromptu live stargazing session at open space just outside the library. We can observe the Moon and Saturn through telescopes!

So bring your family and friends along and acquire skills that we enable you to enjoy stargazing for the rest of your life!
