21st November 2009

Another successful event was held on 21st November 2009 with over 80 visitors enjoying the event. There were the usual workshops, including rocket design and launch, planispheres, pin prick telescopes and sundials. Everyone went home clutching their handmade rockets, sundials and planispheres, happy in their achievements.

The evening was also busy and after two short talks, a clear sky meant some observing, so everyone headed outside to the telescopes. After an hour long observing session, everyone headed back into the hall for another demonstration and the competition draw.

Well done to Anne Campbell from Cullen on winning the Spot the Star competition, who is now the proud owner of a pair of binoculars from Strathspey Binoculars.
