Update October 2020
As assistant leader of the Astronomy Group I am able to report that we still ticking over in lock down, since we all have internet access. At the start of each month I send out an article giving details of what can be viewed in the night sky for that month, it includes a chart of the months night sky. In addition three videos relevant the month are sent out, these are from the USA “Tonight’s sky” NASA’s “What’s up” and from Wales “What’s in the night sky” (this has a bias to Astrophotography). Also from time to time articles, videos and photographs reinvent to astronomy are sent to members.
