Practical Courses 2021


 

The Rhythmic Sky Hands-on

Especially also for those of our visitors of all ages who became really interested in practical astronomy during our Open Nights, we may offer this “Super Open Night” course that explains in detail how celestial objects move in our sky. We add a practical aspect of telescope handling to this very successful course and we will do as much observing as the weather allows.

This course can run in Term 2 and Term 3 so that we are outside daylight saving time and it gets dark sooner.

This course covers:

  • Rotating Earth,
  • Orbiting Earth,
  • Moon,
  • Planets,
  • Milky Way
  • and what else moves in the sky.

In addition we do sky tours, discuss telescope basics and include practical handling of our telescope.

 

Whether these courses will be given this year depends on volunteer availability.

Watch this space.
