Have you ever looked up and wondered how to navigate the night’s sky?
The Midlands Astronomy Club will be hosting an introduction to astronomy in Lough Boora Discovery Park on Saturday the 15th of November. This is one of a number of events being held in conjunction with the Science Festival 2014..
As part of the event there will be a talk and then we will switch off all the lights, go outside and look up at the night sky using equipment supplied by the club. It is advised that you wrap up well and bring a flask of something hot to keep away the cold as you enjoy the starry open sky of Lough Boora.
This event is suitable for all ages, so bring the whole family down for this unique opportunity. The event will begin at 8pm, so please assemble at the Visitors Centre where there will be tea and coffee available before to the talk.

The Lough Boora Discovery Park website has been announced as a Finalist in the Best Practice category for this year’s Web Awards, which take place at Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin on Wednesday 22 October 2014.
The new Lough Boora Discovery Park website was launched in early August 2014 as part of a Bord na Móna initiative to increase awareness of the park as a free amenity in the heart of Ireland that offers something for everyone.
The website highlights the activities that are available for all ages and abilities, with information about the park’s nature and biodiversity, history and the story of Bord na Móna. The new website testing.loughboora.com encourages users to visit Lough Boora Discovery Park, discover and explore all this amenity has to offer.
The 2014 Web Awards take place at Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin on Wednesday 22 October 2014.
