MSA’s Astronomy Outreach Events 2019

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).

Mobile Planetarium

I had a chance to view a simulated night sky in National Museum Planetarium’s mobile planetarium on August 13, 2016. The planetarium is about 5 meters high (from floor to dome ceiling). It uses a fish eye lens mounted onto an LCD projector to display images of the sky.

Here are some photos taken during the virtual sky tour.
