Stargazers Star Party

Stargazers Star Party

16/10/18

Ten CIS students and three staff headed down to Herefordshire on 12thOctober for the Stargazers Star Party. 

They survived the storm and the students triumphantly beat the teachers’ team in the Friday quiz and were awarded with loud applause and cheers from the crowds.

Students attended lectures on Saturday on astrophotography, mythology in the stars, constellations and rockets! After the hog roast, when it appeared all was lost, the clouds cleared for an hour allowing them to learn lots from all the experienced astronomers around. 

They saw Mars, the Veil Nebula as well as spotting many of our newly learnt constellations in the sky.  They braved the rain overnight and left just as the river burst the other side of the banks!
