Stargazing Live Astronomy Evening - Did you go?

ON Friday, 7 February 2014, at Ainsdale Discovery Centre, Liverpool Astronomical Society itself hosted the Stargazing Live event which, in 2012 was staged by the BBC and when attendees were able to peer through the many telescopes provided by members, at the spectacle of the night sky. Last year members of this Liverpool society were at the event held at Jodrell Bank. Unfortunately, this year the weather was too poor, the skies remained overcast and, despite anxious dashes outside by ever hopeful officials, there were no opportunities for any practical experiences. Nevertheless the lecture room was crowded to capacity and beyond, as two members of the group very competently talked us through the Life of a Star and gave us details of our planetary system, including recent space missions. This was followed by a lively Question and Answer session, which included several very enthusiastic youngsters, who hopefully will carry the torch forward. Having received stern warnings about the inevitable blindness which results from direct observation of the Sun, especially through any lenses, everyone was invited to visit Liverpool Astronomical Society at their observatory to study it in safety through their specialist equipment. The observatory is situated on Pex Hill, South Liverpool, fairly close to the Knowsley Express Way. To find out more about Stargazing Live visit:- or the Liverpool Astronomical Society website.
