Wymington School Outreach Event with Bedford AS.

by on , under Astronomy Blog

Bedford Astronomical Society held an outreach event at St Lawrence School in Wymington on the 23rd of November.
Linton did four talks in the hall while a collection of members (including me) stood out in the car park with a large collection of telescopes for people to look through.

Very soon a string of parents with their children formed orderly queues at all of the telescopes.
I guess there was close to 200 people attending.

Lots of gasps, “oohs!”, “Ahs!”and “Wows!” and excited faces when they saw the Moon, Pleiades and various other objects made the whole thing so enjoyable and rewarding.

The image of the Moon above St Lawrence’s Church at the top was taken by BAS Member Dawn.

    A clear night and a great time was had by all . Many thanks to Dave and all the other BAS members who made the event a success.

    Hi Dave, I was very impressed with the scope you bought along. Such clear optics. Sorry we did not get much of a chance for a chat, it was such a busy evening. I second Linton’s comment. All the best. Pete
