Amateur Astronomy Free Mayo Planets Solar System

A Tour of the Solar System

Newport Astronomy Club October 4, 2016 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm


A short description of the formation of the solar system, followed by a tour of the planets and major moons.

Attendees will get a fact sheet with all relevant data (planetary orbits, masses, etc.) so the talk will not feature the presentation of dry numerical data but will instead concentrate on the most interesting features of each object visited.

The talk will conclude with a brief look at the Kuiper belt and Oort cloud, and will finish with a Q and A session.
