This weeknd's observing weekend is no longer going ahead.
Why? Well we came to the conclusion that our current observing site at Caldbeck is just too far away for most people to make the trip, and certainly not suitable for a Messier Marathon. At our Committee meeting last night we decided it would be better to put our efforts into finding a suitable location closer to Cockermouth before holding any further observing evenings.
Regular observing evenings are certainly the right thing to do, we just need to make them accessible to more people, and hopefully increase the number of people taking part. So, as always, we look forward to your suggestions. We will attempt to get a new location sorted out for our next scheduled observing evening at the end of April.
