Patrick Moore’s Celestial Marathon
When: Tuesday 8th January, 19:00-21:00
Where: Thinktank Planetarium, Millennium Point
Entry £6 – advance tickets only (available here)
Sir Patrick Moore challenges you to locate and observe his 50 favourite celestial objects in the winter night sky. Are you up to the challenge?
Twenty-five of these objects are visible with the naked eye or binoculars and the remaining 25 require a telescope. In a special astronomy show hosted in partnership with the Birmingham Astronomical Society, Thinktank Planetarium will help you locate all 50 objects inside the comfortable dome and demonstrate how to find them in the real sky outside.
Everyone attending will receive a 2013 BBC Stargazing LIVE starguide and a British Association of Planetaria Moon Calendar.
