If the Moon had been at a better phase, (ie. pre Full Moon), we could have almost started the outdoor star party season at Easter, with the weather being as good as it was.  But it was rising just a little too late, and with no planets visible – (Mars being well passed its best) the spring sky is not ideally suited to the passing public.

We shall therefore wait for the next favourable lunar phase before we commence the star party events season.  Here then is the diary for the next couple of months.  The dates listed below are for May and June scheduled events, (weather permitting.  If you can join us, (especially if you can bring a telescope along) it would be most appreciated.  Hope to see you.
