Stargazing Live observing
We will be holding public observing events on the evenings of Friday 10, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 January 2014, from 17.00 to 19.00 each night. The venue will be our usual Ruislip Lido site, though this time we will be able to use the new car park which will provide hard standing and no wet grass!
Study the craters of the Moon as if you were flying over the surface! The giant planet Jupiter and its satellites will also be on view. We'll also be able to see the famous Seven Sisters star cluster and the Orion Nebula.
Admission to the event is free of charge. Bring your family and friends, members of WOLAS will be on hand with a variety of telescopes and will be able to answer any questions you may have.
Don’t forget to wear warm clothing and bring a torch (please switch it off when asked to).
Ruislip Lido is off Bury Street. Entry is via the gate adjacent to the free car park at the end of Reservoir Road HA4 7TY.
WOLAS Members' Weekend Observing trips
The Spring 2014 Wolas Observing Trip will be again to our regular location at Llanerchindda Farm in Mid-Wales. The farm has been booked by us for the weekend of 25th to 27th April 2013 and we have managed this year, by early action, to have all rooms held for WOLAS.
If you are interested in attending then please contact Howard Brown-Greaves later in the year after it has been announced (email@example.com) or phone him on 0207 381 9965.
