Greetings, astronomy enthusiasts!

Our very first astronomy session for this semester is around the corner. Do check your schedule and make sure you’ll be available on this day; otherwise you’ll miss the following fascinating session:


Title: Introduction to stargazing

Venue: Training Room 3, Yusof Ishak House (YIH)

Date: September 3rd, Friday

Time: 07:00PM


Rong’en, our newly elected Research Head, is going to give us a small talk. A quick peek into his powerpoint slides reveals an exciting and intriguing journey ahead! Following the theoretical lecture, we will have a hands-on observation session (subject to weather condition).


Now, keep our fingers crossed for clear sky this Friday, and remember to drop by.

We look forward to seeing you there! (:
