30 April 2015 - No observing session tonight

Michael Morris
 

With the darkness getting later and later, there is no observing session tonight (Thursday 30th April).  There are now no more observing sessions planned until the 4th Thursday in September (24th September). 


The next society meeting is at Lower Smite Farm on 14th May when the ever popular Bob Mizon will give a (strange?) talk entitled Weird Astronomy!


See you there.


Observing tonight

Rod Stewart
 

Chris has just rung me to say that as there is high cloud tonight and that it does not get dark till 10.00pm, there will be no observing session tonight as it will not be viable.


Regards, Rod



Observing Tonight?

Timings on meetings alerts

Michael Morris
 

A usual flowing a change to British Summer time, the marvel of modern computer programming that is the calendar on our Yahoo Newsgroup is again churning out incorrect reminders on the timing of events.  Please be assured that Thursday's meeting at Lower Smite Farm starts at 8:00pm, not 9:00pm.
