Free Stargazing Talk: Jupiter - King of the Planets

The next public stargazing talk is titled "Jupiter, The King of the Planets".

Date: Saturday, 7 Feburary 2015
Time: 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Venue: Toa Payoh Public Library. Level 1 Programme Zone.

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

Are you still among the hundreds of thousands who still didn't know we can actual see planets from Earth?

Even from a light-polluted city like Singapore, that is possible on a clear enough night. These planets may have been appearing on many nights outside your room window without you having the awareness to notice and identify them for what they are!

So let's start observing the planets starting with the biggest - Jupiter ... and its moons!

Come attend this talk to learn how Jupiter looks like visually, its interesting features, how to locate it in the sky and the best practices in photographing it.

Weather permitting, we will be conducting live stargazing during/after the talk  at the open ground outside Toa Payoh Public Library. My friends and I will be deploying our telescopes for the public to enjoy.

Still need one more reason to see Jupiter? It is closest to Earth during this weekend in 2015!

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