A Brief note on upcoming events

Next Observing Session

Saturday 1st  October 2016 - @ Westleton Common  : starting  at about  7:30 pm

Sunset is at 18:29 there is slim chance we can start the evening with some Lunar observing  then normal night time observing after, but with very little astro dark untill late some of the fainter objects will be a struggle.

In the event where it is doubtful, but not certain of bad seeing conditions, we will look at the conditions on the common and make a final decision to transfer to the Crown, or alternatively, the White Horse Westleton.

 

Our Next Meeting

Saturday 15th  October 2016 -   start at 7:30pm

This Meeting  is a presentation by Paul Webb on what's in  the Winter Night Sky

along with a short talk by Nicky Wedekind on what's been sparking her interest lately.

 

 

Now the nights are getting  longer and the days shorter there is still an oppotunity to observe our Sun, but it has to be done safely. Come along and find out how.

Important Notice

 

On a DASH Observing night, observing should be the first priority. That being said after consultation of the local weather trends and people on the ground, we will publish either by email, Twitter, FaceBook, on the website, the likelihood of observing going ahead...

In the event where it is doubtful, but not certain of bad seeing conditions, we will look at the conditions on the common and make a final decision to transfer to the Crown, or alternatively, the White Horse Westleton.

 

So your actions on the night should be,  1st :- check the common car park. 2nd :- the Crown back room, and finally :- if the Crown is shut due to a private function try the White Horse....

 

We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible.but the latest will be 3:00pm on the day of observing.
