Ashford Astronomical Society presents Astrobash. A full afternoon and evening of space, science and fun! It’s Kent’s opportunity to look up into the heavens, and it’s open to all ages!
Ashford Astronomical Society is hosting a celebration of Astronomy giving the public a chance to have a look through telescopes at the wonder of the night sky - with friendly guides on hand to explain it all!
During the day they plan to use a specially modified 'Solar Telescope' to image the sun on a large projector screen, and they will also be attempting to link up to an earth orbiting satellite and gain a live weather forecast!
For younger visitors there is a bouncy castle, a chance to make and fly your own rocket, create your own planet, try your hand at controlling a lunar lander and even meet a Dalek!
Astrobash 2009 will run from 2pm until 9pm on October 24th, and will be held at:
Woodchurch Community Centre
