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 but the NLO is still open for members to attend if they wish on a Friday evening.

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 records:

Also, you can still find details of our Observer Group 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.

The Observers’ Group Winter Programme starts on 6th September at the meeting time of 19:30, unless otherwise stated.
