Astronomy club study surface of the moon

Published on 14/01/22

We have been lucky with some bright, clear winter weather at Claremont recently. On Thursday 13 January we had some great conditions in which to get a closer look at the moon. Astronomy club pupils gathered together on the triangle at the end of the school day to peer through the school telescope. Pupils were able to catch a detailed glimpse of the surface of the moon, including its many craters as it shone brightly in the sky. They were also able to see Jupiter in the South Western sky, with three of its moons clearly visible in orbit around it.
