The Tauranga Astronomical Society is having a FREE evening
at the observatory on Tuesday January 23rd from 7:30pm.
You can view the crescent moon through the large 14” and smaller telescopes at dusk – from around 8.45pm, but before that we have a very recent documentary video on the Cassini Mission.
A space craft journey to Saturn, liftoff 1997 where it explores the moons around this beautiful planet with its famous rings before finally crashing on the surface late last year.
Moon viewing is weather dependent.
