BBC's Stargazing Live in Ireland
on Tue,Wed,Thu 28,29,30 March
in AI Headquarters Blanchardstown
Come to our event as promoted by Prof Brian Cox, Dara O'Briain and the BBC at Astronomy Ireland Headquarters where you can look thorough Ireland's largest publicly available telescope!
TIME OF THE EVENT : Each of the BBC Stargazing Live Astronomy Ireland viewing events will run for one hour and will run regardless of weather (as there will be lots of other things to see and do at each event - talks, magazines, special offers, free tea+coffee+soft drinks and biscuits & sweets!) However, try to be there at 8:00pm to see Mercury as it is low down and will get more difficult to see as the minutes pass and this is the unique part of the event i.e. joining the elite club of less than 1% of Earth's population that have seen Mercury!
The event will begin at 8pm at our Headquarters in Blanchardstown (just off the M50) For map and directions visit: www.astronomy.ie/map
The event is suitable for all ages, and we encourage families, children and adults to come along.
While we encourage scout and school groups to come along please call ahead in order to confirm if there are any prior groups arranged to come along. This makes it easier for our volunteers to enable all groups to view these amazing sights.
