At 8pm this coming Friday 6th May we have Perry Vlahos for our members night talking to us about the coming months night sky.
This Friday night for the members’ astronomical pleasure we have Perry Vlahos giving us the skinny on what’s worth getting up for and what isn’t. There’s three planets on the rise, but which is not worth having a look at currently? There’s a meteor shower, but is it one of the better ones or is it not worth getting up for like the Lyrid Meteor Shower? What are the best objects in the May sky for naked eye? Is there much to see with binoculars? And what’s only worth having a look at in a telescope of reasonable size? All this plus much more will be delivered in an entertaining, non technical presentation with a rock solid guarantee that no brains will be harmed in the process!
Members' Night is on every Friday night commencing at 8PM sharp (doors open 7:30PM). Guests of members are always welcome. Contributions of food to share for supper are always gratefully received and demolished! :-)
Please consider the neighbours and drive in and out quietly using low beam only, or better still, parking lights.
