All meetings will now be held in the Newchurch Pavilion which is directly adjacent to the VAS Observatory in Watery Lane Newchurch – map etc here.
The Pavilion has recently been refurbished and now provides an excellent facility for us:
- Parking is easier
- It is marginally cheaper for us
- On clear nights we can adjourn to the observatory
A list of the planned meetings is here.
Tonight looks likely to be the first really clear Thursday night for a good few weeks.
The observatory will be open from 8pm and I look forward to getting a few ‘scopes outside and welcoming a few visitors.
The is no entry fee but we are happy to receive donations should you be feeling generous 😉
Wrap up warm and please bring a small torch to light the way across the field to the observatory.
As this will probably be the last blog post of 2016:
Happy New Year to all VAS members and to astronomers everywhere. We wish you clear skies in 2017.
