The first few months of the year are known to Manila-based astronomers as the astronomy season, because this is the time of the year Manila and nearby provinces experience clear skies (the rest of the year are rainy months not suitable for astronomical observations). My colleagues at Manila Street Astronomers (MSA) are now conducting FREE telescope viewing events not only in Manila, but in other provinces as well. These outreach astronomy events are open to everyone (bring your kids, and the whole family)!
Below is a list of MSA’s astronomy outreach events for January (bookmark this page as I will update this post as soon as schedule for other months become available).
Arrive early, and bring your cameras. If the moon is visible, volunteer astronomers will assist you in getting a photo of the moon!
Manila Street Astronomers is a non-profit outreach astronomy group. For most recent events announcements, please head directly to their website.
