HEAL students reach for the sky

Today 3 HEAL students formed a telescope club. Angel, Sandhya and Joseph got together to explore HEAL’s newly acquired telescope.

At 16.45 they had their very first session. . In this session they used the telescope to explore the Forested Hill across the way from HEAL school. They first used the 20mm eyepiece. With this they could see birds in detail on the trees of the Forest. They then changed to the 4mm eye piece. This gave them more detail but over a reduced area.

They had planned to try to view the moon at 8pm but when they consulted the Night sky for their position (latitude 16.6 N, longitude 80.8) to their disappointment they found the moon had set and was no longer visible.
