Following on from the very successful Junior Star Gazing Live in January. We held a Star Gazing Live event to coincide with the BBC programmes.
The event was opened by our patron Henry Bellingham MP and Councillor John W Doyle, Mayor of Downham Market.
There were static displays of telescopes and Astronomical equipment, a scale model of the solar system, information on the sun and some excellent pictures of the partial solar eclipse from 20th March 2015.
There was great advice available about what sort of telescope to choose for a beginner and how to take photographs of the moon and stars.
