Ilkeston & District AS - Summer Display & Open Days - June 2013

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Throughout June the Ilkeston & District AS are holding their Summer Astronomy Display at the Visitor Centre, Shipley Country Park, Slack Lane, Heanor, Derbyshire. This year, besides our static display we’ll also be holding two Open Days; taking place on Saturday June 1st and Saturday June 29th. Doors open from around 10:30am until 4pm. Admission is free, but there are pay & display parking charges at the Visitor Centre.

We’ll have a selection of member’s telescopes on show, a gallery of updated drawings and photographs, and several automated powerpoint presentations going on throughout the day. We also hope to do some solar observing in the Centre’s Courtyard – though this is weather dependent! We also hope to have a Childrens’ Star Trail, but this has yet to be confirmed by the person who normally organises it.

These Open Days are pretty informal affairs, and members will be on hand to chat about astronomy and give friendly advice.

Please note that this event does not include any evening observing on this occasion – should still be a good though.
