In celebration of Mid-Autumn Festival, *weather permitting*, my friends and I will be conducting a Moon/Star-gazing session at Bishan - Ang Mo Kio Park this coming Saturday.
Event: Moon and Stargazing at the Park
Date: Saturday, 14 September 2013
Venue: Bishan - Ang Mo Kio Park (River Plains)
Observation Spot: Open field between McDonald's and Clover by the Park (condominium)
Time: 7:00 pm till very late evening.
Admission is FREE and open to public.
We will be bringing our telescopes to observe planets, star clusters and the beautiful Moon of course!
Some photos from last year's event at the same observation spot:
You may use your handphone to take photos of the Moon directly through the telescope too!
Yes. This is shot with my phone handheld over a telescope! No complex DLSR setup involved! No kidding!
Was just talking to a Straits Times reporter on the phone. She couldn't believe it! :)
One the same evening, there will be a major Mid-Autumn event organised by a Teck Ghee constituency (Ang Mo Kio). The Prime Minister is the guest-of-honour. So expect the Bishan Park carpark to be full and very packed. If you are driving, you may want to park at the multi-storey carpark along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 and walk over instead. Or take public transport and alight at bus-stop near Bishan Street 22/25.
Do bring your kids and their lanterns along and join in the festive mood! For event photographers, this is also a good opportunity to practice their night shoots under challenging lighting conditions.
Want to take this opportunity to thank Nparks for being supportive of our mid-autumn stargazing event last year and this upcoming one!
Please take note this event is totally weather dependent. In case of bad weather, we may cancel it last minute. Please check this blog regularly on that evening for the latest updates or follow my tweets at http://www.twitter.com/astrosg.
