Hi everyone, well not sure how many will read this, but he I go anyways
Really just wanted to give you an idea about what I do in my free time, as you all know I'm an amateur astronomer and I love taking photos of deep space objects like galaxies etc.
Well I also run an astronomy group called Astronomy 4 Everyone, we have members from around the world now and it's steadily getting more and more members, so all good there.
One of the things myself and members of the group do is a lot of public outreach events, basically involves us taking our scopes etc to schools, scout or guide groups, village fete's and even running our own events at our dark sky observing site.
Well tonight we had such an event, this was also part of the BBC Stargazing Live 2013, a yearly event that in the last three years since it started and grown and grown in popularity around England. The event tonight was at Chandlers C of E School in Surrey, UK.
Really excellent night with over 120 people turning out on a very cold, cloudy and wet night. Luckily this was an all weather event so everything was done indoors, shame, but had to be done.
If your interested I have uploaded pics from tonight onto my groups Flickr account along with a write up about tonight, here's the link for it [link]
There are also loads of other photos from previous events, I would upload them on here but their not really art, so I'll keep them on Flickr and the groups Facebook pages instead.
Anyways, thanks for having a read and I hope you enjoy looking at the photos.
Wishing you all clear dark skies from which to enjoy the amazing things up there above your heads, Keep looking up!
