OBSERVING EVENING CANCELLED - 30TH JANUARY

Michael Morris
 

We had some nice clear bits of sky early evening :-).  However, we now have a bank of ever-thickening cloud rolling in from the west which is not due to clear us until much later this evening, so we decided to cancel tonight's planned observing evening ;-(
Sorry folks.  We'll try again in February.

OBSERVING EVENING CANCELLED - 23rd JANUARY

Michael Morris
 

Unfortunately, tonight we have yet another evening of cloud, so tonight's planned observing evening is cancelled.
However, all is not lost.  There are 5 Thursdays in January this year, so we'll have another crack at an observing evening next Thursday (30th January). Fingers crossed.
