Sunset till midnight at Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Serdang. The Astronomy Group has planned the long-awaited Stargazing session as we celebrate so many holiday within this 1 or 2 months. Be dazzled and spectacled by the rising of the full moon that night! 2 of the largest planets in the solar system will be visible, and nicely position right above our heads.
To add more excitement, the sky will open to us with the most easy to recognize constellation, Orion the Hunter, accompanied by the brightest star in the sky, Sirius, and not to forget the famous open cluster, the Pleiades, also called the Seven Sisters. We will most probably do the observation near the Masjid UPM or the Padang Kawad UPM. Both are easily distinguishable and accessible places.
However, please feel free to contact Shahrin (016-3377211) one week before the activity, to confirm the exact place. You can also check out any updates on the unofficial Astronomy website at http://members.xoom.com/maig2000/astronomy.htm
