Event Description:  We will be holding a public event to participate in the worldwide activities of the ongoing World Space Week and the upcoming International Observe the Moon Night. We plan to have telescopes setup to view the Moon and Jupiter. So, come check out the bumpy surface of the sole natural satellite of the Earth and the colorful gas giant and its moons, up close and personal! 7th October 2100hrs - 8th October 0030 hrs
Report on the Results:  Jupiter viewing event combined with International Observe the Moon Night, held 7th Oct from 21:00-23:30. Almost everyone who attended saw Jupiter and its moons through a telescope for the first time. No media coverage as far as we are am aware. Approx 400-450 attendance, which is probably the largest attendance we've had to an astronomy event. Attendance boosted by on-the-night canvassing of nearby public locations with leaflets. Distributed leaflet on the Moon. Attendance from many different age groups, but mostly 18+ due to the time of the event. Many questions from public on distances of planets, number of stars and cosmological events.
