Celestial Mechanics


We usually run an Introduction  to Astronomy Course in Autumn but this year is different and we are running some short courses instead.

Have you ever wanted to learn more about Celestial Mechanics ( how to get about the night sky without getting lost)?

  • Celestial Sphere
  • Celestial Coordinates
  • Time, Seasons
  • Phases of the Moon
  • Tides
  • Transits
  • Eclipses

No prior background in mathematics or physics is required.

The Course runs over 1.5hrs hours with a short break for refreshments.

The course will be run onsite at the Observatory. Numbers are limited. Social distancing is required, more information when you register. Discount for Members 60%.

Participants can view through the telescopes if it is clear afterwards. If the Covid19 situation changes dramatically again this course will be online.
