Evenings of astronomy

Our ‘Starry Nights‘ event organised by The Astronomy Club of Medoc in August 2014, was well attended by about a hundred people over the planned two evenings.

We were able to observe Saturn in all its beauty, as well as its rings of ice; shooting stars were observed too. With the naked eye, we were able to transfer our attention to the beautiful constellations of summer and their multi-coloured stars.

All those in attendance, young and old, were able to discover the Milky Way (our galaxy) and enjoy the balmy summer nights of the Medoc.

A repeat of this years event was proposed for next year. Venue: Vendays-Montalivet aerodrome in summer 2015.
