Astronomy in Harwich Penninsula

We meet 1st Thursday evening of each month to assist each other with theory
and informally on clear nights (which usually come at short notice) for outdoor work.

In the lighter summer months we may visit places of astronomical interest.
At the beginning of 2018 our group subject is Black Holes.
Some members are doingthe MOOC on "Finding Higgs Bosun".
Several members have purchased the book "The Stars - The Definitive Visual Guide To The Cosmos" and this may be a group study later in the year when we've read it to start the understanding of it!

For more details contact Stuart on the contact page.

In 2018 we are planning a trip to the Dark Sky location in north Essex and other wider trips have been mentioned.
