This evening we had 22 Beavers and 4 leaders in for a stargazing session. Jonny and I arrived at 6pm and opened up the hall and set up for the talk. Jonathan L joined shortly after and opened up the imaging dome and set up the ODK. We were then joined by John who set up the Visual dome. The talk was successful and all children managed to observe the Moon through the ODK with Jonathan and look at the set up / Moon / Venus with John. At around 7.30 we then took the opportunity to observe the visible constellations, including Orion and also Venus through the clear patches of sky.

The Beavers were very enthusiastic and contributed with some fantastic questions.

Jonathan, Jonny and myself left around 8.40pm and John stayed on site.
