Free Stargazing Talk - Clash of the Titans

The next public stargazing talk is titled "Clash of the Titans".

Date: Saturday, 1 November 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!

Clash of the Titans. You read about this Greek mythology. You even watched the movie. Medusa, Perseus, Cassiopeia, Andromeda, a terrifying sea monster and that cool flying white horse?

But did you know most of them have their corresponding star constellations in the night sky? And in them, some of the most amazing, mind-boggling cosmic objects? Some of them can be seen with just our eyes alone on a clear night!

Come attend this talk to see for yourselves how they look like and how to find them in the sky. With this understanding, you will be able to enjoy observing them even more.

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!
