Our Observation Sessions 

 

Our Observing sessions are normally held on  Westleton Common  Suffolk. ( see Map )

 

As you travel through the village you turn up Mill Street, and as you leave the houses, take the dirt track on the right onto the car park. then take the footpath through the gap in the hedge onto the common where we will be on the hard standing  ( 50 m from the car park )

 

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, whether or not, to transfer to the Crown, or alternatively, the White Horse Westleton.

 

Bad weather contingencies as normal.

 

Our Meetings

 

Our normal meeting night is a Saturday night at the Westleton Village Hall.

(see Map )

The night of the month changes, as we try to coincides with the Full Moon when observing is not so good.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

 

On a "Normal" DASH Observing night, observing should be the first priority. That being said after consultation of the local weather trends and people on the ground, we will publish either by email, Twitter, FaceBook, on the website, the likelihood of observing going ahead...

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....
