Urgent Changes to Sunday 26th September meeting


Our Next Sunday Meeting will be Via Zoom 26th Sept 2021, at 7:00pm BST

Due to unforeseen technical difficulties, we will NOT have a Face to Face meeting at Darsham Village Hall, on Sunday Night, but we will revert to a Virtual meeting Via the Zoom Platform.

The talk is by Dr. Emma Curtis-Lake of the JWT  entitled " An Eye on Distant Worlds " The meeting will open with a general Meet & Greet chat followed by the talk at 7:30pm. Hopefully there will be time for a Q & A session with the speaker following his talk. Email with the joining link will be sent out during Sunday afternoon. anyone wishing to join in just email me.


Our next Observing Session will be 3rd October 2021, at  Darsham Village Hall Playing Field,

between 7:30pm and 10:00pm and is not weather dependent, so if it is unsuitable for observing we will be inside the village hall, where we will have general discussions and help for those in need.


Due to Corona Virus, we hope that all meetings will be face to face in the Village Hall.  some covid precautions will still be in place and we will let you know as and when we know.

Our normal format is to have a short talk on a variety of Astronomical subjects as well as general chat   email  [email protected] for details, and join in.

Important Notice

On a DASH Observing night, observing should be the first priority. That being said after consultation on the local weather trends and people on the ground , and in the event of inclement weather we will be in the village hall for astro workshops, to be lead by the needs of the members. So if you have questions or problems, let us know and we will see if we can help.


So your actions on the night should be,  1st :- check the Darsham Village Hall Field.. 2nd :- the Darsham village hall.


We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible, but the latest will be 3:00pm on the day of observing.
