Our Observing Session is the first of this year, so why not join us and have a look at the night sky under dark sky conditions. Bring your own scope if you wish, or just come and look through one of the scopes in use on the night.
Our first priority is to Observing, but in the event of inclement weather on the Common, we will be using the village hall for refreshments and informal talks on any Astronomical related questions or problem. check your e-mails and facebook for lastest news.
Exciting news,,, We are happy to announce that we have added a new event to this years event calendar.
In conjunction with our friends at National Trust - Dunwich Heath we are putting on a "Family Moon Night" on the
25th November 2017 from 5:00 pm till 8:00 pm or later if people want to stay a while after the moon has gone down.
we hope to put on some short talks in the Barn where you can ask questions from some of our astronomers and astrophotographers. the evening is based on family, so why not join us even if it is cloudy and damp.
Don't forget to visit the Downloads Page for interesting stuff....
With the aid of Westleton Parish Council, Westleton Common,
our Prime Observing Site has been granted Dark Sky Discovery Site Status.
On a DASH Observing night, observing should be the first priority. That being said after consultation of the local weather trends and people on the ground , and in the event of inclement weather we will be in the village hall for astro workshops, to be lead by the needs of the members. So if you have questions or problems, let us know and we will see if we can help.
So your actions on the night should be, 1st :- check the common car park. 2nd :- the village hall.
We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible, but the latest will be 3:00pm on the day of observing.
