BBC Stargazing Live
January 2012 saw the return of BBC Stargazing Live to our screens. For the event, IDAS teamed up with Attenborough Nature Centre to hold a public observing event at the Nature Centre. Over 60 members of the public joined us to marvel over the night sky, talk to the asronomers and and look through telescopes. Nottinghamshire Wildlife trust ran craft and a star trail along side IDAS.
Following the success of last year, we are repeating the event to be held at Erawash Museum on 11th January, 2013 from 7pm to 9pm. All are welcome.
