BBC Stargazing Live 2014 – Street Stargazing

10th Jan 2014
Our first SGLive event kicked off at approx. 5.30pm despite the threat of the weather bringing everything to a grinding halt. A very diffuse Moon gave enough of a target for the astronomers and public to observe. Meanwhile an impromptu ‘set’ was organised inside the café and two astronomical talks were well received. We estimate that our first event must have attracted in excess of 150 people. The stars of the evening were the leader & pupils of Chipping Norton School who brought along one of the 5 telescopes they have built, a terrific accomplishment. Many thanks to Patrick, Polly and the staff of Jaffe & Neales who kept the café open. We will repeat this event on Friday 7th Feb. Finally it was very encouraging to hear that some visitors had travelled from as far afield as Cheltenham and Abingdon. Some pictures of the event ©Alex Browne BBC website
