Astronomy club

Before we starting GCSE Astronomy for year 10 Islington pupils we ran an astronomy club for City and Islington College students. The astronomy club was run by Mike Vetterlein (the physics technician), Tom Bell (who was an astronomy student at UCL) and Chris Lintott (who was an astronomy student at UCL and is now presenting The Sky at Night with Patrick Moore).

On Wednesday 12th January 2005 the club used the Faulkes telescope in Hawaii to take images of some galaxies.
