Blackrock Castle Observatory, with ESERO Ireland, are hosting two new astronomy programmes everyone can enjoy and learn from at home.
Daily Astro Challenge – Weekdays at 12.30pm
With this program we will slowly build your familiarity with the night sky through a series of increasingly complex challenges. These short, 2 minute episodes build on what you’ve learned in earlier sessions to take you from a novice to a real amateur astronomer in no time! These challenges are made possible by the support of ESERO Ireland. You can view the back catalogue, and find new challenges every weekday. Check it out here.
Planetarium at Home – Fridays from 4pm
Guided planetarium shows are at the heart of the BCO visitor experience and we’re sure you’ll enjoy watching these weekly shows as much as we enjoy making them. These are a perfect family weekend activity, with two short episodes dropping every Friday evening. These videos are also supplemented with ESERO Ireland Resources for those who want to go one step further with the learning experience. The first episodes dropped already!
