We are also involved in two other major events this month.
On Saturday October the 12th we will be at the "Night Under the Stars" at the National Gallery. This is a major fundraising event for the Estella Scott-Roberts Foundation
At the UCCI college the Society is involved with the STEM Conference which runs from Wednesday 16th to Saturday the 19th. In particular there are two free events for the General Public.
On the evening of Friday 18th there is a lunar eclipse and the UCCI Observatory and the CIAS plan to observe from the UCCI Quadrangle. The Society will be there from 6 PM onwards, with the Moon rising above the buildings in eclipse at perhaps around 7:00 PM. By 8:50 the Eclipse is over.
On Saturday afternoon the 19th October there is a family fun afternoon, which again includes the UCCI Observatory and the CIAS to observe the Sun. This will run from 2:30 till 4:30 PM. Other events that afternoon invove a display of robotics, music by a theramin, a Van De Graff Generator (with a teacher attached to it), an alchemist and a rubins tube.
Towards the end of this month Comet ISON may become visible in the morning sky. More information on this and other events this month is in the Society newsletter which is availble free to all members. To join please come to our next meeting or email me with your interest.
Clear Skies (fingers crossed)
