Free Stargazing Talk - Sun, Moon & Eclipses

The next public stargazing talk is titled "Sun, Moon & Eclipses".

Date: Saturday, 4 October 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!

Sun, Moon and Earth lining up in a straight line - an extraordinary celestial wonder that has fascinated human civilisation for millennia and many more to come!

Come attend this talk to see for yourselves how they look like and understand the basic astronomical concepts involved. With this understanding, you will be able to enjoy observing them even more.

Eclipses actually happen quite frequently but appears very rare to the general public because they do not know in advance when and where to look for them.

Learn how to read eclipse charts and find out about upcoming solar and lunar eclipses. There is even one visible from Singapore next Wednesday early evening!

Weather permitting, we will be conducting live stargazing during/after the talk. My friends and I will be deploying our telescopes just outside the main entrance of the library.

So bring your family and friends along and join in the fun!
