November Meeting

Thanks to everyone who came along to our November meeting despite the snow and ice. Special thanks go to our guest speaker, Robin Bellerby, from Dumfries who made it down to Cockermouth to tells us about the Wigtownshire Astronomical Society's activities and in particular their project to establish the UK's first Dark Sky Park in Dumfries & Galloway.

It was certainly no easy task and Robin provided a fascinating insight into the project from concept to conclusion, including his interview with Sir Partick Moore following the opening of the park.

Thanks again to Robin and to Jeremy for organising the talk.
