We are really sorry but tonight’s (11 June 2019) Young Astronomers Club is cancelled due to reasons beyond our control.
We apologise for the late notice and hope to see you next time.
Tonight’s stargazing event (16th February) at Great Notley Country Park is cancelled due to the poor weather forecast. Sorry for any disappointment, and we hope to see you at the next one in March.
If you can’t wait that long, on Tuesday (19th Feb), Great Notley Country Park are running their Sky Ropes Under The Stars Event, to coincide with the Super Moon. Weather permitting, we will be there with a few telescopes so you can take a look at the Moon after your adventure on the ropes. Booking is essential, details here:
In the January 2019 edition of Pulsar we included a gif.
Alas not all email programs like them, so here’s Paul’s gif for everyone to enjoy.
It’s 46P and was taken by Paul Blakesley just before Christmas, over a period of 1.5 hours
The stargazing event at Great Notley Country Park tonight (Saturday 19th January) will be going ahead at 6:00PM. The weather forecast is for a lot of cloud, so we expect views to be limited if we see anything at all. The event is due to finish at 9:00PM but we may end it sooner if there are no breaks in the cloud.
Saturday’s stargazing events (15th December) at Great Notley Discovery Park and Abberton Reservoir are cancelled due to the poor weather forecast. Sorry for any disappointment, and we hope to see you at the next ones in January.
