100 HOURS OF ASTRONOMY
The Society for Popular Astronomy (SPA) is encouraging everyone to look skywards as part of an international 100 Hours of Astronomy event on 10-13 January. The main focus will be the Moon, which will grow from crescent to first quarter phase over those days. “Anyone with a clear sky can pick out a few features, even with the naked eye,” says SPA president Robin Scagell. “So why not invite neighbours or friends round for a look through your scope?” See www.popastro.com for more details.
