between 7:00pm 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 also be taking the opportunity to get together socially, and answer questions on set up, and other subjects.

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.
