Free Public Stargazing Talk - Comets & Meteors

The next public stargazing talk I will be conducting is titled "Comets & Meteors".

Date: Monday, 18 November 2013
Time: 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Venue: Toa Payoh Public Library. Level 1 Programme Zone.

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

Learn about the difference between comets and meteors and the upcoming meteor shower periods. The main focus for this talk will be the *potential* Comet of the Century comet ISON! Acquire some basic stargazing skills to locate this comet in the sky. You may then be able to observe it through binoculars or telescopes and even take a photo of it!

*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, Venus and Moon through our telescopes!

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