The second day of astronomy and science outreach at Imperial Primary School to celebrate National Science Week 2012.

During the day, learners attended talks and got to view the Sun and sunpots. After a glorious sunset and a spectacular moonrise, learners, parents and members of the public got views of the Moon and planets through patches in the cloud.
