DASH Astro Events
On Friday the 27th July there will be a Lunar Elipse visible from the UK.
The moon will rise at about 8:45pm already in shadow, so we have once again teamed up with the Dunwich Heath N.T. Site who will allow us to setup our scopes on the cliff top, in the bottom carpark, to view this spectacular event.
It will be weather dependant, but there will be other stuff to view before the full moon comes out of shadow..
Why not try to join us. from 8:30 pm.
Our Next Sunday Observing / Workshop Session
Sunday 9th September 2018, Observing on Westleton Common Time 19:30-late
This weeks Observing Session is our first Night time Observing of this new season. As there will be no moon to speak of, the dark skies should offer great views of the night skies, for both visual observing and astrophotography.
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.
you dont need a scope.... We have them, just come along and have a look through any number of different types of scope to suit all pockets and viewing preferences.

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.
