On Friday 18 July 2022 NAS used its Hybrid presentation system to display and reveal the new images from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).

The awesome spectacle here is of the Carina Nebula,7600 light years from Earth, catalogue number NGC3324.

Our Hybrid presentation system showed this presentation live to an audience of NAS members at our Seething Observatory while the talk was simultaneously live streamed to NAS members and members of the public. Our presenter was at their home location while the talk was displayed on a large screen in the Observatory club house.

This system allows us to restrict the attendance at the Observatory to a safe limit, whilst allowing the presentation to be shared with a much wider audience.

NAS is likely to use this same Hybrid system for its presentations planned for our next astronomical season, which starts this coming September.
