Our Stargazing Group has live meetings again at the Planetarium on the first or second Tuesday of the month. I have been joined by astronomer – John Ward and we shall run the club evenings together.
The monthly meeting starts at 7:30 pm reviewing the last month, then the current month’s star guide on the dome. then a 15-minute break brings your own drink. If it is clear we shall have live stargazing with scopes until 9.30 pm; if cloudy or wet, then an astro-topic and film/show, finishing at 9.30.
We can have only 16 people in the dome to provide social distancing with everyone wearing a mask or visor. The theatre is sanitised before the meeting with UV radiation.
There is an annual membership fee of £9.00 per quarter or £30.00 per year from 1st October. We are looking for volunteers to help run the planetarium; so there is FREE membership for a half day (minimum 3hrs/month) plus free seats and discounts on all events, details in our volunteers’ leaflet.
The single meeting cost is £5.00 if seats are available.
If you wish to take part, respond using our email contact on this website or email me at email@example.com and I’ll send details of how to join in.
