Wednesday, May 26 @8:30PM: Total Eclipse of the Super Moon

On May 26th we have a very special celestial event. Not only is it a ‘Super Moon’ but we also have a Total Eclipse. The program begins with a presentation that explains how and what is about to happen and how we get a “super moon’.  This will be followed, weather permitting, with a tour of the night-sky, telescope viewing and, finally the eclipse itself.

Friday 13 November 7PM – Celestial Navigation

Crossing the oceans has been a human achievement for thousands of years but how did those navigators find their way when there was no land, no mountains or familiar coastlines. Today we can traverse the world and know where we are very accurately at any time of day or night using satellite navigation systems. But that has only been in the last 40 years or so. Find out how we can use the Sun, Moon, Planets and Stars to find out where we are and get a glimpse into the ancient skills of Navigating by the Stars.
