Stargazing with Nest School for Whole Child Development

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
