Mars bar

There will be prizes for the highest scores on Kahoot

After the presentation we may view Mars through our telescopes – or even with our own unaided eyes!

Cloud

As long as there’s no cloud cover of course.

The on-screen video that Dr. Gray will show is part of the ‘How the Universe Works‘ series. Mars is particularly close right now and its orange colour is easily seen in the eastern evening sky, and western morning sky just before sunrise.
