That sounds great. Please could you reserve 2 places for me (member + non member). I would prefer to drive rather than be driven and  would be able to provide a lift for a further 2-3 people. I will pay the deposit at the next meeting.

Jonathan.

Sorry but I need to cancel my previous booking as I thought it was a coach trip, not car sharing.

Visit to National Space Centre, Leicester

When:
Saturday, 22 June 2019
10:00am to 4:00pm
(GMT+00:00) Europe/London

Where:
National Space Centre, Exploration Drive, Leicester LE4 5NS

Description:
We are organising a group visit to the National Space Centre in Leicester on Saturday 22 June 2019.  If we can get 15 people (or more) attending we have an entrance fee of only £11.50, instead of the usual £15 (or £12 for concessions) + a planetarium show.  Furthermore, the society has decided to offer a further £5 discount for every WAS member who wants to attend.  This means the total cost to each WAS member will be between £10 and £6.50. 
You can find more about the excellent National Space Centre at https://spacecentre.co.uk/
We are not planning to have a coach, instead we will organise car sharing nearer the time.  Travel time from Worcester would normally be around 1.5 hours (just under 80 miles).
To secure a space (no pun intended) we need £5 cash deposit paid to us not later than our next main meeting on Thursday 14th March.

Re: Lunar Eclipse

Thanks Peter.
Yes, the forecasts none too good. Unless the forecast is appalling, I'll probably set my alarm for around 3:30 am just to check.

Forget the media hype concerning tonight's "Wolf Blood Supermoon".
Attached details for Monday 21st Lunar Eclipse
Weather forecast not too promising!
