Astronomy

This club is open to all Senior School pupils interested in discovering the night sky, the moon, planets, stars, constellations and shooting stars.  Pupils will learn how to use a telescope, take photographs of the moon, planets and other objects in the night sky. There is also the option for pupils to design and create their own telescopes.   

We have access and cannull provide training for pupils to remote access and use three professional telescopes in the Canaries, Hawaii and Australia, and pupils have the opportunity to assist professional astronomers in two unique projects to identify, and perhaps even name, exo-planets and double stars.  


Monday, 12:40pm – 1:20pm
