Seeing Stars For Chelford
Chelford Brownies and Guides held a joint meeting recently for a visit by Macclesfield Astronomical Society to help both units with their badgework.
The Brownies are currently working on their 'Stargazer' interest badge and the Guides are working on their 'Space- Go For It' challenge.
Chris Sweetman from the Society spent an evening with both units in the Scout Hall, beginning with a fascinating computer presentation about the Milky Way and phases of the Moon. The girls then divided into three groups for different activities, including braving the cold outside to view the Orion constellation through a large telescope, and discussing what they would need to survive a crash landing on the Moon.
The Brownies and Guides are combining again on February 27th, when they end their stargazing badge work with a joint trip to Jodrell Bank.
