Around 120 stargazers braved a chilly night at Whitelee Windfarm near Glasgow on Tuesday (9th October), which is situated almost 1,000 feet above sea level, to learn about the secrets of the night sky with top astronomers.
ScottishPower Renewables and Glasgow Science Centre host a range of events at Europe’s largest windfarm across the year in order to encourage members of the public to access the site, and interact with the windfarm.
The stargazing event allowed visitors to experience the dark sky over Whitelee with astronomer Steve Owens and witness the stars the way they are meant to be seen.
In the Visitor Centre, Glasgow University astronomers were on hand to discuss the inner workings of telescopes and talk about the latest news from the Mars Curiosity Rover.
"Let's Talk About Space” a musical, educational and theatrical project by Kieran Heather and Chris McGarry also performed. Having received praise from BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music and following a series of shows at Glasgow Science Centre's Planetarium, they performed a sci-fi themed electro-pop set focusing on the funny side of Astronomy and Space exploration.
