Ideally we make observations of the sky and then learn about the objects we have seen. In fact observations are frequently impossible because of weather conditions so our studies are carried out by members presentations. We meet at our house because of convenience and because I have equipment which the group can use. When we make observations we go into our garden in the dark. I try to make it safe but we cannot have too much light because it interferes with our ability to see the stars. If anyone is concerned prior to joining us they would be well advised to have a talk with me.
We meet on the second Wednesday of each month at 7-30pm**.
Sometimes there are events of interest and we will meet to make observations or to visit a site of interest which means additional meetings.
**We do not meet in June, July or August because the nights are too light.
There are no location costs although we might visit e.g. a planetarium which would involve a cost.
