The twelve students who are studying GCSE Astronomy have been carrying out their coursework using the telescopes from Tolcarne Observatory. They have planned to carry out observations on many different aspects of the night sky, including the craters and other lunar features, Messier objects, constellations and the Lyrid Meteor shower.

The night started with some cloud cover, but we are confident that this will clear over the next couple of hours.  Armed with flasks of hot chocolate and warm jumpers the Astronomy team are all set for a good night of stargazing!
