Free Public Stargazing Talk - The Andromeda Galaxy

The next public stargazing talk I will be conducting is titled "The Andromeda Galaxy".

Date: Monday, 16 September 2013
Time: 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Venue: Toa Payoh Public Library. Level 1 Programme Zone.

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

Do you know under clear skies and at the appropriate time of the year, you can see the largest object in the Universe with your eyes alone?

Imagine if you have access to a telescope or binocular to enhance that view!

So come and find out more about the amazing Andromeda Galaxy - its fascinating mythology, scientific research value and how to locate it in the night sky.

*Weather permitting*, during/after the talk, there will be an impromptu live stargazing session at open space just outside the library. You can observe stars and Saturn through our telescopes! It's also the Mid-Autumn festival so come and see the gorgeous Moon - its craters, mountains, valleys and more!

Bring your family and friends along and acquire skills that will enable you to enjoy stargazing for the rest of your life!
