Stargazing Live : Friday 12th to Sunday 14th January 2018 - 6:30pm to 10:00pm
Sunday 14-01-2018 21:30 Unfortunately, as expected, we were completely clouded out and we've packed up after the last visitors left. Over the weekend we've had around 100 visitors in all but this is the first year we've not been able to do any observing.
Sunday 14-01-2018 15:30 As expected, last night we were completely clouded out again. As before we had a much larger display of telescopes inside along with the talks and displays. Some forecasts for tonight are a little better but are still predicting it to be mostly or entirely cloudy. There is a slim chance that we might be able to see something but we shall just have to wait and see.
Saturday 13-01-2018 16:30 Last night we were completely clouded out so we couldn't do any observing. This did mean that we could have a much larger display of telescopes inside. We also had the usual talks and displays. The forecast tonight is also not good so we don't expect to be able to do any observing tonight but everything else will still be on. The forecasts for Sunday are not great but some forecasts are suggesting that the sky won't be completely covered with cloud but we shall have to wait and see.
Henley Star Party
Early in 2018 we are holding our usual Stargazing Live weekend outreach event at The Henley Golf Club.
In the event of cloudy skies we shall use the club house to show you videos, telescopes and discuss topics of Astronomy and Cosmology.
We are also extremely grateful to the hospitality shown us by the staff and management of The Henley Golf Club. They were tremendously helpful in making last year’s weekend a success.
In previous years we had great nights with around 200 people attending on the clearest night.
The Henley Golf Club
The Henley Golf Club is an excellent venue for these events because it is located in an area that is much less light-polluted than many adjacent districts and offers a wide panorama of the sky.
The Golf Club will provide hot food & drinks along with a licensed bar.
