November meeting - Tuesday 26th

Our next meeting is this Tuesday (26th November) at 7.30pm.

This month we will be focusing on Comet ISON which promises to be a good sight in our winter skies. It has been visible in the early morning for a couple of weeks, although it has certainly been a challenge to observe it.

We'll look ahead to it's visibility during December as it emerges from the other side of the sun. Jeremy will be providing advice on how best to photograph it.

There will also be news on society observing events and, as we don't have a formal meeting in December, we will arrange our informal Christmas drinks.

  1. While we wait to see if ISON survives its trip round the sun, don't forget to look for comet Lovejoy. Almost as bright as ISON and much higher in the sky just below the handle of the plough currently so easy to spot. I will bring along an image and spectrum on Tuesday
