Free Stargazing Talk - The Summer Triangle

The next public stargazing talk is titled "The Summer Triangle".

Date: Saturday, 2 August 2014
Time: 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Venue: Toa Payoh Public Library. Level 1 Programme Zone.

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

Three bright stars from three constellations form the asterism known as the Summer Triangle. And our Milky Way galaxy cuts right across it! Some of the most spectacular celestial objects will remain "hidden" in these constellations to those who do not know their of their existence, let alone trying to find them in the sky.

So come attend this info-taining multimedia talk and discover these treasures in the sky. Participants will also be taught how to read a printed sky map which will be distributed during the talk (while stock lasts).

Weather permitting, there will be live stargazing during or after the talk at the open grounds just outside the main entrance of Toa Payoh Public Library. Come see the Moon, Mars, Saturn, star clusters. star clouds up close and personal through our telescopes!
