Stargazing with Nest School for Whole Child Development

Last week, I was invited by the Nest School for Whole Child Development to give a short lecture on the topic Astrophotography as part of their overnight stargazing at the PAGASA Astronomical Observatory. PAGASA astronomer Nico Mendoza and a fellow UP AstroSoc associate member Sha Estrella also gave a series of lectures on various topics related to astronomy. It was an overnight stargazing activity, thus, the students and the teachers were able to view two planets visible on that night: Jupiter and Saturn, through the country’s largest telescope!

Astronomical observations are geared towards sharing astronomy with the general public. It is free and is open to everyone! Take a look at our previous observations. You may join scheduled observations, or you may even request one for your school! Send me a note at eteny@nightskyinfocus.com.

At the PAGASA Astronomical Observatory in UP Diliman, February 08, 2013

Last night, me and my colleagues had an opportunity to visit the PAGASA Astronomical Observatory in UP Diliman. PAGASA astronomer Nico Mendoza was more than happy to let us have a glimpse of the heavens through the country’s largest telescope. We saw the planet Jupiter and its clouds, along with its 4 moons :)
