Event description

Description

Join us on an expedition through space and time as we venture off in search of fascinating festive objects in the winter sky. Our astronomy sessions are designed to inspire and educate as we observe a variety of stars, galaxies, nebulae and planets. We consider their discovery, physical attributes and place in traditional history and folklore, both from a Western and Chinese perspective. Our History Machine provides some warmth, hot drinks and snacks. The series of Christmas expeditions will focus on one our nearest galactic neighbour - the Andromeda Galaxy. We shall consider the lifecycle of stars, from the amazing Pleiades star cluster, known in China as the Hairy Head of the White Tiger, to middle age showpiece double stars including Alchird - the Third Star of Wang Liang. We shall observe planetary nebulae, ancient globular star clusters and young open clusters, including the “Christmas Tree Cluster” We shall also hunt down Uranus, the first planet to be discovered in the telescopic era, by William Herschel on 13th March 1781. Our activities are entirely governed by the weather and sky conditions but we shall endeavour to provide you with a memorable astronomical experience.
