Exploring the equatorial night sky with Geminid Meteor Shower

Exploring the equatorial night sky with Geminid Meteor Shower

Year-end 2D1N stargazing trip is returned for astronomy enthusiasts! We’ll schedule 2 sessions of tutorial covering “photography in nature and night scapes with stars” and practical astronomy in field observation.

Winter sky has been rewarding our enthusiasts with bright stars and large yet beautiful constellations as well as the deep-space objects!  On this particular day – 15 Dec 2012, we’re also expecting another special sky event – Geminid Meteor Shower!  This is an annual meteor shower that rewards us with approximately 30 meteors per hour during peak time.

On this spectacular event, we are honoured to invite local active photographer, who is also well known for making time-lapses and star-scapes – Mr Gradient Lok to conduct the photography session.  By his sharing, our participants are beneficial from his personal hands-on experience.  On the other hand, Ms TeohHuiChieh, an active amateur astronomer in local astronomy community, will share us her travelogues with images that full of astronomy elements.  She is also keen on field observations especially the deep-sky objects such as clusters and nebulae.

Another advantage that we try to get for our guests is the venue that not too far from Kuala Lumpur but seems to be decent for night skywatching activity – Bukit Tinggi Hillpines Resort.  Hillpines Resort is a new resort with own organic farm and ground facilities such as open field, swimming pool, beautiful creek and a medium size pond and etc.  Many of these are ideas of framing photographs.  Chalet is designed with tatami style and bathroom attached for 4 pax.

The activity is open for registration now until 16 Nov 2012 and it’s limited for 30 pax only.  Should there be any queries, please forward to: pooihang@sunbrightnu.net
