Public Open Night - New Horizons to Pluto - Part 2 (15th Jan 2016)

Start time: 2000

Location: Seething Observatory

Host: Dave Cook

In his second lecture on the subject, Dave Cook will explore New Horizon's amazing fly-by of Pluto. He will show how the amazing images and data obtained have transformed our view of the mysterious dwarf-planet and its moons, then explain the plans for the probe's future in the outer solar system.

The Observatory facilities will be open to all visitors and, weather permitting, spectacular views of the night sky through Society and member owned telescopes can be expected.

Car parking and access to the Observatory facilities will be free. Entry to the lecture is £3 for adults, £1.50 for children.

All events are held at the observatory. Doors open at 7pm with talks starting at 8pm, unless the room fills up earlier, in which case the talk will start sooner, and depending on numbers, could be repeated - early arrival is recommended. Refreshments are available at the end of the lecture. Lectures vary in length but generally last approximately 45 minutes and are aimed at those with a general interest in astronomy. Children are welcome (recommend from about 8 years upwards).

We hold a number of special public events with talks, tour, and look through our telescopes!
