Radlett & District

Astronomy

Leader: TBA

Esther Richard can no longer lead this group, due to personal circumstances, and the group is now without a facilitator.

To all members interested in this group and others, would anyone like to step in to lead it?

If no one comes forward, then unfortunately the group will have to fold. There might still be evenings where Gary Harding can bring out the telescope if he has timeā€¦but all main players in this group are extremely busy with other activities as well. To those concerned, Simon Pyzer, Gary Harding, Graham Taylor and Peter Altman, many thanks for all their informed and interested efforts in the past. It is now time for others to put in their efforts too!

Meetings: Typically on a Thursday evening or occasionally at other times when weather permits scope usage or visits are planned. Members of the group will be notified of meetings by email and via this webpage.

The Astronomy group own a telescope, thanks to a grant from the Radlett Festival Committee, it will be available for use by the group and for the local community under supervision of the group. Telescope evenings will be arranged at short notice depending upon the weather and peoples availability and will be announced here and via eMail.

Keep an eye this web page for short notice announcements of telescope evenings and any other events.
