Hi everyone, and a Happy New Year. I hope everyone has managed to get some astronomy done, even with the awful weather we've been having.
New years Eve was a nice clear night, and (glass of champagne in hand) I spent some time wowing my neigbours with the winter hexagon, the Orion nebula (clearly visible as a hazy looking cloud) and pointing out Jupiter.
BBC Stargazing Live is almost upon us again, and the club has been invited to attend the event being run by High Legh observatory. This will be on the 12th and 13th january, but only if the weather allows. Members will be emailed in regards to this with more info when it is available, and it will also be posted on the Facebook and twitter pages. I'll add the dates into the calendar.
I'd also like to remind you all that the AGM is on the 29th January. Please see the previous blog post for further details. I encourage you to all to nominate yourseves for a role if you have the time and would like to have a bigger say in club business. It is a rewarding experience, and an active commitee helps keeps the club running smoothly.
