Just a quick note to tell everyone about the events Worcester Astronomical Society are taking part in/organising to tie in with BBC Stargazing Live 2013.

Friday 11th January - Free Public Observing session at Bishop Perowne High School, Merriman's Hill Road, Worcester. 7.00pm start. Hopefully we will include a demonstration of the society's low light video camera showing live views of Jupiter, the Orion Nebulae and other wonders of the night sky on a projected onto a large indoor screen. We also hope to have free BBC Stargazing Guides to give away.

Saturday 12th January - Droitwich Library are holding another Space Day. A fun packed day all about space for all the family. Worcester Astronomical Society will have a display at the event. Last year there were 1,500 visitors!

Thursday 7th January - Telescope Amnesty - A telescope workshop for beginners and lapsed astronomers. Bring along your new or long-neglected telescope and we'll show you the basics about how to set it up and use it . Crown East Scout Hut, Crown East, nr. Worcester. 8.45pm start.

Getting close now, let's hope for a cloud free evening!

We can't guarantee that it's cloud free, but the latest forecast suggests we might get a hole in the cloud around 9.00pm.

Also, we now have some BBC Star Guides to give away (*thanks to Droitwich Library).

If cloudy, we will have talks on 'Finding your way around the night sky' and on 'Observing the Moon - reading the lunar landscape' as well as displays.
