Stargazing 2014

Well, another successful event!!

We had literally hundreds of people turn up for the Stargazing Live!! event we hosted. There were queues all night to look through the telescopes kindly provided by the Nottingham Astronomical Society. It was a lovely clear night this year, not like last year when the weather was so against us. Jupiter with its rings and moons could be seen quite clearly.
It was cold but people soon warmed up with hot drinks and soups, we were even taking orders and delivering them to the people in the queues for the telescopes!!
The tombola, as always, was popular with the star prize of a Sterling Silver and blue topaz ring being won on only the second ticket drawn out!! Ha ha, the booby prize - which is something useful - was also won!!

We had visitors from quite far afield, Sheffield, Leics etc who had seen the event advertised on the BBC website.

We saw lots of people who join us every year for this event and we would like to thank you, and the people who haven't been before, so much for coming along and supporting us, it does mean a lot to us.

I will be posting pictures of the event in the gallery as soon as we have them available.
