January meeting

We had an excellent first meeting on Wednesday 15th at the Village Hall, New Road, Norton sub Hambdon after our move from Crewkerne. Reactions to the hall were all positive. It’s going to be a great place to meet.

We welcomed several visitors to the meeting and hope they enjoyed the evening. (What’s not to enjoy with Bob Mizon doing his presentation of  APOD images).  Of course it wouldn’t be Bob if he didn’t take every opportunity to raise the issue of light pollution. Quite right too!

Thanks to Bill Reed, Bud Budzynsky and Pete Ashtead for sharing their excellent images with us, and to Arthur Davis for his Monthly Sky Notes. Thanks too as usual, to Zena and her merry band of helpers for providing refreshments  and for washing up duties. Next time, some of you will be made to ‘volunteer’ so be prepared!!

We finished rather later than normal so we’ll be looking at ways to get everything done more quickly in future.

Annual subscriptions are due next month, so please remember to bring £18 to renew membership for another year. Also, a CADAS Council will be elected for the coming year.

The speaker for our next meeting on Feb 19 will be Len Telford. His topic is ‘Imaging the Moon and Mars’.

Hope to see you there.

Dark skies.
