Field Trip: 25th October 2014

The constellation of Orion. Look carefully you can see some colour in the Great Orion Nebula.
The Pleiades. Some may know them as the seven sisters. If you want something interesting to do one quiet afternoon, look up some of the stories of the Pleiades in Australia indigenous cultures. Such a rich culture.
The large and small magellanic. The only clouds an astronomer is happy to see in the sky
Orion: Can you see the nebula ??
This one might be hard some some to see, but it is actually constellation Canis Major. It's upside down.

Discover the Universe!

Star light, Star bright, First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might, Have the wish
I wish tonight.

Have you ever wished upon a star? It is not to late to start. Sitting outside as the sky grows dark and watching the first stars appear that’s the essentials of astronomy in one easy package. 

To be an astronomer all it takes is patience, attention to detail, and a sense of wonder. The later being the only real requirement.

Spotting that first star is always special, but the experience acquires a new dimension if you know what you are looking at, and doing it with a group of friends— now that’s magical.

This is what Star Gayzers is about.
