This week we are Joining our friends at Breckland A.S. at there Star Party close by at Haw Wood Farm Darsham for a chance to experiance observing with a group of like minded astronomers.
In the event that things may be different the ground, on the day of observing , we will publish either by email, Twitter, FaceBook, or on the website, the likelihood of observing going ahead...
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 where it is doubtful, but not certain of bad seeing conditions, we will look at the conditions on the common and make a final decision to transfer to the Crown, or alternatively, the White Horse Westleton.
So your actions on the night should be, 1st :- check the common car park. 2nd :- the Crown back room, and finally :- if the Crown is shut due to a private function try the White Horse....
We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible.but the latest will be 3:00pm on the day of observing.
