Astronomy Ireland’s September Star-B-Q

Play

Noel McGuinness talks to DAVID MOORE about ‘Star BQ’, taking place this September and what you can see in the sky tonight.

Tonight, Saturn is visible just above the moon, and you’ll be able to see it with the naked eye. A half-decent telescope will reveal the rings, and with a good one, you’ll be able to see Titan, one of Saturn’s moons.

The ‘Star B Q’ will be co-ordinated across the country allowing the general public to use some of the most powerful telescopes in Europe.
