Sidewalk Astronomy Night – 29 Oct 2011

Sidewalk Astronomy Night is back!

Sidewalk Astronomy Night is a programme where amateur astronomers get together and setup their telescopes at public areas to provide the public an opportunity to see, with their own eyes, celestial objects through telescopes. At the same time, the public will also be provided with information of what they are seeing, with the hope that it could raise public interest in astronomy and space science.

This year, our National Space Agency (ANGKASA) will be organising a Sidewalk Astronomy Night on Oct 29. Details of the programme are as follow:

Date: 29 Oct 2010 (Saturday)
Time: 8 – 10 pm
Venue: Taman Tasik Titiwangsa (previously site of Eye On Malaysia) Kuala Lumpur

All are invited to join this programme. Admission is free.

Apart from ANGKASA, other astronomical bodies around Klang Valley, i.e. Starhunter Astronomy Society, Starfield Instruments Supply, Starfinder Astronomy Society and Jabatan Mufti W.P, KL will also be joining in the programme.

The Moon and planet Jupiter will be easily visible. If weather and sky conditions permit, we can also see some bright constellations such as Cygnus and Pegasus.
