April meeting

It was good to welcome our visitors! Hope you enjoyed the meeting,

We actually managed to get outside for some observing and having some fun watching and imaging the ISS as it went over. It was a laugh watching Lorna’s excitement when she discovered that she’d caught the ISS for the first time on her new fancy camera. Nice one Lorna. Meanwhile Bill’s all sky camera was picking up all sorts.
Before all that though, there was Bud’s ‘Back to basics’ talk which was entertaining as well as instructive. This was followed by Arthur’s sky notes for May. We had to wait until the viewing session was over before being treated to Bob Mizon’s ‘Object of the month’ Hydra; needless to say, the wait was well worthwhile!

Thanks to all contributors and to Zena and her merry band for yet again providing our monthly feast. Thanks too to the sweeper uppers who valiantly cleared all the grass we had tramped in to the hall from the field. Great job.
Next month’s talk is on eclipses. Should be a good one!
