Friday 20th and Saturday 21st October 2017
Experience the night sky at the summit with the Isle of Man Astronomical Society.
“The moon will be at its first quarter (new moon) on the 27th October and will be a great object to view in the sky above the mountain’s summit. If cloudy there will be a talk about the moon, Saturn and other features in our night sky and the 60 years of the Space Age.”
Following supper in the Snaefell Summit Restaurant there will be a brief presentation by members of the IOMAS. Guests will then venture outside for a viewing session using telescopes provided by the society. An explanation will be given of the many features visible through the telescopes and with the naked eye.
If cloudy, supper will be followed by an illustrated lecture, an opportunity to look at some of the Society’s telescopes and a question & answer session.
