A Brief note on upcoming events, updated 12-5-2022
Our next Observing Session will be a Solar Observing Session Sunday 29th May 2022
We will be observing at Dunwich Beach Carpark.
Normally these sessions are from 11:00am till 2:00pm and are weather dependent, so if it is unsuitable for observing, there will be no observing. If we have to cancel, we will try to give as much advanced warning via email and social media.
Why not join us, and have a look at a star in action, through perfectly safe, specialist equipment, and learn what's going on in our life giving Sun.
Our Meeting on the 15th May 2022 - CANCELLED
Our Next Evening Meeting will be 11th September 2022 from 7:00pm, when we will have
Matt Bothwell from Cambridge university coming to speak, his subject will be, “Hubble Trouble- measuring the expansion of the universe.”
Darsham Village Hall is now our permanent home for both Meetings and Observing on the field outside the hall. More announcements will be made once dates and timings have been confirmed, so keep an eye on the website for more updates.

With the aid of Westleton Parish Council, Westleton Common,
has been granted Dark Sky Discovery Site Status.
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 endeavor to give as much notice as possible, of any changes to the advertised schedule.
