The following evening, Saturday 22nd, we willll, weather permitting, be called in to action again at the Danby Moors Centre, for their Dark Skies Week event.  The National Park ‘Dark Sky’ events have all been highlighted widely in the media, including Astronomy Now Magazine, various local newspapers and radio, so if skies are forecast to be clear, public attendance will be high (over 50 -60) and we shall definitely require assistance from members regarding scopes /transport.  The event runs from 18:30h-20:30h, and we aim to be setting off around 17:45h to allow time to set up.

Winter has so far stayed away from the UK, but i have no doubt it will have some say in proceedings.  Suffice to say if conditions are hazardous it will be called off, but if cloud is our only problem, plan B will be used to good effect, ie an indoor presentation.  More details will be given at the Feb meeting.
