    Mar 2018 - QEGS Community Observatory Update

    Since the QEGS Community Observatory was officially opened last year we have hosted two Open Evenings for the local community on 27th November last year, and again on 13th March this year. At each event David Greatbatch of the White Peaks Group, assisted by Rob Sangster, QEGS Physics Department, gave a talk on Observing the Night Sky.

    Both events were well attended, with almost 60 members of the local community having visited the facility. We have also hosted three separate Cub Scout packs working on their Astronomy Badge, and continue to run the Space Science and Astronomy Club once a month. White Peaks Astronomical Observing Group now hold their meetings at QEGS Community Observatory, and members of the community have been encouraged to come along to these observing sessions.

    Future events being planned include further community events and primary school liaison/taster sessions.
