Our Next Sunday Observing
Sunday 29th September 2019, Night Time Observing at Westleton Common or Darsham Village Hall. Time 7;30pm
This weeks is the first Night Time Observing sessions of the season, and could be at Westleton Common or Darsham Village Hall. Due to the current closure of Westleton Village Hall, the alternative, if the weather is not suitable to observe, will be Darsham village Hall, which also haso the possibilities of being our monthly observing site, but we do not know untill the developement of the site is finished.
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. keep an eye on social media for last minute changes and information.
Due to building work to Westleton Village Hall, will be moving to the New Darsham Vilage Hall, from September 8th untill further notice. More announcements will be made once dates and timings have beed confirmed, so keep an eye on the website for more updates.
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 Darsham village hall.
We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible, but the latest will be 3:00pm on the day of observing.
