    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 set up in the café and 2 astronomical talks were well received . We estimate that our 1st event must have attracted 150 + people. The stars of the evening were the leader & puplis 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. Very interesting to learn that we had visitors coming in from Cheltenham and Abingdon .This link will take you to Alexs pictures :

    In contrast to the previous day , Saturday 11th found us in both glorius sunshine and later under a clear night sky at the Dept of Astrophysics in Oxford in our capacity as the northern contingent of ‘Stargazing Oxfordshire’ for their Stargazing Live event . From early afternoon until 10pm over1200 people were treated to indoor displays and exhibitions and some fantastic observations of the Moon & Jupiter . A great success allround. Below is a link ( again , to Alex’s pictures of the event :
