At Our Next Meeting

Meeting Nights

We meet on the first Monday of the month and we can use the inside facilities from 1830 until 2100 when the centre doors are locked.  We can stay outside as long as we want and that is usually limited by the weather.  

The format of our meetings is changing from talks by the members and then going outside to do our own thing to a slightly more structured approach to cover the needs of the more experienced members and those of the less experienced.  We will still have the talk by one of the members on an astronomy related topic and Damian will still give a talk on his Constellation of the month.  At this point we hope to move outside and locate the "Constellation of the month" in the night sky with tips on star hopping and pointers on how to find the Constellation and any partiular points of interest.

We are also introducing "tip of the month" which could be anything the members bring up.  

On Friday 8th of June members of NLA went on their Jollys to..... Scotter!

This was the location of our 1st ever summer BBQ event. A great location was found and BBQ was set up. Scopes were set up by a few of the members including 2 solar scopes. Trying to dodge the trees and clouds we did manage a short bit of solar viewing before the sun went down. 

A great BBQ was then enjoyed thanks the Charles and the Team of Chefs he had to help him.

Then it was onto the bigger astro scopes to view the Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn (My Fav).... Sorry can't forget the clouds.

Also in the evening we had a flypast and display courtesy of Charles and his Quadcopter.
