Open Dome 6th June - Meteors

Recommended Posts


The next open dome event is on Thursday the 6th June at the usual time of 7pm. This month our guest speaker is Steve Ibbotson of Astrosphere Planetarium. Steve will be talking about how to observe and detect meteors. In particular the use of radio astronomy for detecting meteors. This will be followed up by Mr M Perkins who will introduce the Long Eaton School’s latest project, a meteor detector, currently being built by a group of year 7 girls as part of the Astronomy and STEM club.


Doors open at 6.30pm when refreshments will be available. Prior to the talk there will be opportunity to do some solar observing if the weather permits. Everybody is welcome, under 16’s to be accompanied by an adult please. A suggested donation of £2 is welcomed, with all proceeds going towards the cost of refreshments and other costs.
