About 130 amateur astronomers made up of students, teachers, and members of the public took part. Participants were entertained and informed by a series of nine lectures on physics and astronomy, as well as a very enjoyable bird-watching expedition led by Dr. Lee Lay Tin and Ms. Cecilia Yip. Eight pairs of binoculars and several astronomy-themed quiz prizes were given out. The skies were great on the final night of the retreat -- the Milky Way and stars showed their colours and majesty!
