We will soon be offering free seminars and workshops, introduction to astronomy programs, basic astronomy training courses, astrophotography workshops and much more!

The small bodies, roughly in order of decreasing size, are the asteroids, or minor planets; comets, including Kuiper belt and Oort cloud objects; meteoroids (see meteor and meteoroid ); and interplanetary dust particles. If it’s sunset, and the Moon is directly overhead, what phase must it be? The data deluge is already overwhelming astronomers, who in the past endured fierce competition to get just a little observing time at a major observatory. “For the first time in history, we cannot examine all our data,” says George Djorgovski, an astronomy professor and codirector of the Center for Advanced Computing Research at Caltech. “It’s not just data volume.

Through the school summer holiday we offered additonal 'pop-up' activities in our Eco Zone area and Inflatable Planetarium. The Solar System has been relatively well-studied, initially through telescopes and then later by spacecraft. Both telescopes are Cassegrain reflectors. *Due to limited capacity at the main telescope, visitors will need a Q card to view it. The Spacecraft takes brightness data every thirty minutes from over 150,000 stars so there is a lot to look at.

The orbits of newly discovered asteroids and comets have to be loaded by the app via software updates or by downloading the data from the Web from time to time. [ Our Solar System: A Photo Tour of the Planets ] Mobile sky-charting apps work because our devices accurately know the date and time, as well as our location (via GPS or Wi-Fi), and therefore what's up in the sky. The Star-B-Q of July 18th 2015 was a fairly good one. The Celestron® NexStar 60 SLT is a high-quality computerized telescope that features a 60mm refractor optical system (with a 700mm focal length) for viewing the best of what the sky has to offer.
