CURRENT EVENTS
UPDATE!

The next Meeting will be the Observing Evening - BUT on the scheduled date 19th April (not 28th)

Meet at the viewing site at 20.00hrs/8.00pm

Two objects that - given clear skies - will certainly be visible are the Moon and Venus - the latter still bright in the western skies, a couple of hours after Sunset

This image was taken a month ago - 19th March - so the situation should be similar - a three-day old Moon and a brilliant Venus.

Moon-Venus

 

The discussion on 'How The Sky at Night' has changed our views on the Solar System - using the comparison between two programmes a few decades apart... will now form the MAY meeting at Ashmole Academy

Sky at Night

 

This image below - taken 7th March - still shows Mercury (the uppermost object) and Venus. Though Mercury, the innermost planet, was in conjunction with the Sun on 20th March, and moved into the morning skies.

MAGAZINES

Issues now on line up to March 2018


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 outdoor 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; Secretary/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.
