Open Dome Event - Protecting Dark Skies

''Our dark nights are becoming an endangered species. More and more lights create a glowing haze in the sky that stop us experiencing the wonders of the night sky. But how can we see how much our lighting affects light pollution? Should we all switch off every light?

The event will start at 8 pm with a presentation by pupils from The Long Eaton School and Miss H. Flood. They will present their project to monitor light pollution on their school grounds and present their first results. This talk will be followed by a brief introduction on what is visible in this month's sky.

Afterwards, visitors will get a tour of the NTU observatory and the chance to see interesting objects in the winter sky with the observatory’s telescopes, small telescopes, and binoculars if the weather allows it.

If the weather is not good, a small planetarium session will be offered in the observatory pointing out objects of interest.''

This is a free event. Please contact Daniel Brown at [masked] to register. If you want to park in the car park, you will definitely need to register because when you register, Daniel will send you a code that you will need to get through the car park barrier. The code is for the South (Binsey) car park.


There is a room immediately to the left as you walk through the foyer into the Centre for Effective Learning in Science which has drinks available and where people gather prior to the talk. I will wait near the entrance in this room from 7.45pm and look out for people.

    Was planning on coming to this, but as clear skies looks somewhat unlikely today, don't think I will. Hopefully next time.

    I tried to be super-organised (for a change!) and register for this event. But it seems I was a little TOO early! Just had a response from Daniel asking me to get in touch in early Feb. So... I suggest you leave it a little while if you're thinking of registering now. :D
