Mondays 8th - 15th - 22nd

3 week course:

SKY WATCHING
(AN INTRO TO ASTRO)

7.30pm - 9.30pm at Caroline of Brunswick near the Level

1. Learn themap of the heavens

Over the year there is a fixed parade of a dozen or so constellations passing overhead.
Some of them are familiar zodiac signs, others have names you may only recognise from Greek mythology.
You will be learning to recognise all of these constellations by sight

 

2. Every night you can see at least 2 or 3 planets

These are usually bright and easily visible.
Find out how to spot them and begin to follow their wanderings across the starscape.
To make sense of their movements we also look at the scale and movement of all the bodies that make up our solar system

 

3. The Moon always seems on the move

Zooming around the sky, sometimes Full, other times just a slither - and half the time it’s about during the day!!!
On this course you can make sense of the Moon’s motions and even bring its rhythms into your everyday life

 

4. So where are we in the Universe?

How do we travel through the Galaxy?
and what does our Galaxy get up to?
These and other cosmic questions will all be asked and answered

The course costs £25 (concessions available)
and each participant gets a free local astrolabe

Winter Solstice Eclipse of the Moon at Hollingbury Hillfort

 

more astro info and details about the alignment are here

An Astonishing alignment of the Centre of the Galaxy, Our Sun, the Planet Earth and the Full Moon takes place from around 6am on 21st September (Winter Solstice)

come and witness and experience this with us by joining the fire at the top of Hollingbury Hillfort anytime from 9pm on the 20th all through the night

Please bring warm clothes and blankets, plus any personal stories of your experiences of the Sun, Earth, Moon or even Galactic Centre Point which we can all share to focus our thoughts and tune our minds to these cosmic bodies

firewood would be welcome plus anything else that would help pass the longest night of the year!

The Full Moon will be tracing a high and bright path (curiously showing the line the Sun travels on the Summer Solstice) - just before it begins to set in the West, at around 6.30am bigger and bigger chunks will start to be taken from it as it passes in front of the Moons shadow

Just as the Moon is completely put into shadow it will set and the Sun will rise

As the Sun rises it will be exactly in front of the Galactic Centre Point. This is the black hole at the centre of our spiral galaxy around which all the billions of stars in our galaxy revolve around

please try to come early in the morning, perhaps from 6- 630am to catch the eclipse and Sunrise
