If you cannot get out to observe because of bad weather don't forget the second session of the project "From the Big Dipper to the Southern Cross" on the 10th of January, the project intends to bring the two hemispheres together - truly One People, One Sky! For this project there will be two telescopes - one in the northern hemisphere and one in the south - on two different nights. No experience is needed. This is a chance to watch as an experienced telescope operator and guide show how they capture the wonders of the night sky. Join other members of AWB Affiliates around the world. Chat will be available between participants and with the telescope operator. Join in or just watch - should make excellent armchair astronomy!
