IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR THE OCTOBER MEETING

The OCTOBER meeting day is moved, as per last year, to earlier in the month - Thursday 6th October

This is because in recent years the week around 4th October has been deemed 'Space Week', and it seems appropriate to include ASH within the world-wide events.

This meeting will be on

ASTEROID MINING : GOLD RUSH or GOING BUST?

Michael Franks has been digging deeper into this intriguing subject

Meeting to be held at the School

6th October
8.00pm - 10.00pm

VISITORS WELCOME

 

 

OBSERVING EVENINGS

Updates via text, (if you have set this up),
and also check the Facebook page
Any queries, email observing@ashastro.co.uk

 


There are new details, including a new membership and renewal form as a downloadable PDF, on the ABOUT page

 

A page has been set up in the MENU - OBSERVING - where the maps, details and photographs can now be found

However these meetings all depend on weather conditions, so arrangements are likely to be made close to any particular date, or could change that day. Consequently having your email and/or mobile phone number is getting more vital as you can be notified up to the minute. So - as we have asked before - anyone who hasn't already done so, (and are willing to do so), please send this and your mobile phone number to - observing@ashastro.co.uk
(This goes to Chairman: Jim Webb; Membership Secretary: Alister Innes and Treasurer: Kyri Voskou.)

This means they can text if necessary.

The Facebook page will also be used for the most up-to-date information


OBITUARIES has now moved to its own page.
