Cloudy skies failed to cast a damper on a special evening to show off Cranbrook Observatory’s newly-revamped telescopes to Cranbrook School parents and students.
The observatory became its own star of the evening as visitors were treated to a tour of the facility and viewed some of the astral images captured by the Meade telescopes and lenses, recently refurbished with funds from a CSPA grant.
Captivating talks about astronomy and the observatory’s history added to what was an extremely enjoyable and informative evening – complete with welcome refreshments.
Thanks from the CSPA go to Rod Smith and his team at the Cranbrook and District Science and Astronomy Society (CADSAS) for all the hard work involved in preparing and hosting the event.
Anyone can join CADSAS. The observatory’s opening times are detailed on its website and the society also hosts regular scientific lectures in Queens Hall from visiting speakers, which are extremely beneficial for students. Details on website.
