Thank you to all the children, parents and friends of Gateford who came along to gaze at the stars with the Bassetlaw Astronomical Society on Tuesday evening. With beautiful clear skies we were treated to an amazing spectacle of moon craters, nebulae and Jupiter with its moons.
After an informative talk about the night sky we all filed outside and queued up to have our chance to look through one or more of the powerful telescopes brought along by the society members.
Then it was time for a tasty rocketdog and planetcakes! Yummy!
We hope to see lots of you at the next space event on Thursday. Come along and help your child/ren to build a junk spaceship in the hall from 1.30pm. See you there!
