At least we have a second attempt this month on the 24th or 25th March. So reserve those nights now.
I've also been wondering if Caldbeck is a bit too far for a 'routine' observing site. Perhaps we should consider something a bit closer. Our ideal observing site should have;
- dark skies
- Low horizon in most directions
- parking for half a dozen or so car, with good access to somewhere to set up telescopes
- be far enough from a main road to avoid headlights spoiling observing.
If you know any likely sites please let s know. Email by the usual address (email@example.com) or leave a comment on the post. Just click the '0 comments' link below, and follow the instructions.
