Observers Group

Friday Night Observer Group

The Observer Group meets every Friday at 19:30 (winter months) and 20:30 (summer months). We do not meet in August.

Our sessions are structured to give members an opportunity to learn more about how to navigate the sky, about stars and planets and everything to do with being an Observer.

Weekly activities are weather dependent. They include naked eye observing together with using binoculars and a wide range of on-site telescopes.

Take a look at our latest observations record  Astro Report 9 Feb 2018, as well as reports from our Messier Challenge 2017, Astro Report KP 27Oct17 and NLO Observers Log Nov 17.

You can still find details of our Observer’s Challenges from the menu above.

In winter, if skies are clear we will normally be outside observing at 19.30 – 20.25. If cloudy then talks will take place.

Although the Observers Group does not meet in August the NLO is still open for members to attend if they wish on a Friday evening.

The Observers’ Group Summer Programme starts on 4th May at the meeting time of 20:30.
