On the night the super blue moon appeared in the sky over Rugby we held our second Astronomy Evening.
Head of Science Mrs Swan says: “What could be more inspirational for our budding astronomers than witnessing this rare lunar phenomenon ? Our school believes in instilling a life-long love of learning in pupils and provoking their interest in all subjects and this was the perfect night to get them interested in astronomy.”
Members of Rugby & District Astronomical Society were at school to explain the wonders of the universe and demonstrate how to use telescopes to view the night sky.
Meanwhile indoors the activities on offer included naming the phases of the moon using biscuits, doing astronaut experiments, using an IPad app to explore the night sky and finding out about star constellations.
