In 2019 meetings will be on the 1st Saturday of the month. In 2020 they will be on the third Saturday of the month
What many people do not know is that we have an observatory with large telescopes adjacent to Stonehenge. Using images from space telescopes each evening will include a presentation on the latest discoveries from observatories around the world plus a special presentation on something in our current night sky. The evening will conclude, weather permitting, with a tour of the night sky and viewing celestial wonders through large telescopes.
Stardates will be held every 3 months and will replace that month's meeting, next Orion Stardate Feb, 21-23 2020.
