CAS Observing Night

Tomorrow night, if it's clear, we'll meet at our Caldbeck observing site for an observing night.

We've mentioned both Friday and Saturday night and a few people have been asking about how this will work, so here are the details.

  • If it's clear on the Friday night we will all meet up at site 3 (see the directions on the CAS Website). Aim to arrive between 8.00pm and 8.30pm.
  • If it is NOT clear we'll abandon the attempt on Friday, and try again on Saturday night. This gives us two chances to beat the Cumbrian weather.
  • However if it is clear on Friday we will NOT meet again on Saturday.

I hope that clears things up. I'll try and post something here and/or on the website letting people know whether it's on or off on the evening. However, work on the principle we'll be going anyway, unless it's raining or 100% cloudy.

We'll just see how it goes this time and report back at the meeting on Tuesday. See you there.
