Danson Show 2009 - Bexley


This was a great event with thousands of people, we met a lot of people with telescopes who didn’t know how to use them and people with an interest in Astronomy but unaware of the Astronomy courses Bexley college has to offer. The site navigation for Bexley College doesn't show the Advanced Astronomy class however you can find it here
More information and pictures will be posted in the members activities area shortly
