A little video with BIG wishes

A little Video with BIG Wishes We're wishing on the Star Epsilon Eridani in the Constellation Eridanus. Concept and Design Deirdre Kelleghan with some of the boys from St Cronans Stargazers Bray Co Wicklow Ireland My idea was to make a video that was both educational and full of hope for both Ireland and the world as I think we all need a bit of hope these days. These boys are members of my children's astronomy club (St Cronans Stargazers) here in Bray Co Wicklow. We made this video together at their school on the night of March 20th 2013 and now it is finally ready.

Message to Space from BCO

Our message will leave this planet in a radio wave from CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory at the end of 2013
Destination - Epsilion Eridani 10 Light Years Away. Arrives at target in 2023

Our slot on Ireland AM

Our video had a bit of a showing on TV3 Ireland AM on Friday morning.
A few of my little astronomers joined me for a brief interview about it.

Well done Dee and all in St Cronans!
A great advert for astronomy in Ireland.
It's fantastic to see the younger generation embracing astronomy.
