Regarding TONIGHTS MEETING WITH THE IOP at Northumbria University at 7pm
Updated H.Parr 5.12.2013
We have released our new timetable of lectures, observing sessions and workshops for the next astronomical season 2013/2014
Our first lecture is on the 17th of October from 7pm with Duncan Wise of the Northumberland National Park NNP (visitor organizer). NNP is one of the most stunning dark locations the North East has to offer. It is right on our doorstep and very few people know about it. He will be talking about the Dark Sky project and share with you more information on the Milky Way Class Park across the region.
We are continuing to bring Workshops into the programme after last years successful run.
The first Workshop is on 24th October at 7-9pm, Buying a Telescope.
Are you thinking of buying a scope, need more advice to which one is suitable for you this is a good way to start. We will have different telescopes on display and an informal Q and A session. We are also in need of our members to come along and support the workshop with bringing their own telescopes on show and to help out.
OBSERVING AND IMAGING THE NIGHT SKY:
We have a selection of dates for our members and friends to come along and observer the night sky, at various locations throughout the North East. These are organised at short notice by Simon Murray (oberserving organiser). Please introduce yourself to Simon at a meeting for more information.
PUBLIC AND OUTREACH EVENTS:
The society's observing group engages in sharing our passion for Astronomy to the general public. Public outreach events will be announced and updated from time to time, so please come back and check the website for more details.
We have a social group on facebook for members, friends and those interested in Astronomy in the North East. Our group is filled with new and experienced astrophotographers, some of which showcase their stunning images. This group is a great introduction to the society and we would like you to come and join in with us.
Details of our Meetings can be found on our lectures page. We Look forward to seeing our members again and new faces into the society. Please come along to the British Red Cross, Croft House, Western Ave, Newcastle. You will be suprised what you will learn and discover.
