A brief note on upcoming events,    updated  25 February 2024

Our next Observing Session will be  on Sunday 10th March 2024

We will be observing at Darsham Village Hall Playing Field, from 7:00 until 9:30pm.

As well as observing, we will be in the Hall, where in the event of bad weather there will be workshops to help those with new scopes  as well as tea, coffee and a chat on all things astronomical. Members will bring  both conventional telescopes and examples of the newer electronic telescopes for you to see. We will also have one of DashAstro's own telescopes for you to experiment with if you wish.

Why not join us, and have a look at the heavens using specialist equipment, and learn what's going on in our galactic neighborhood.

Our next Evening Meeting will be on Sunday 24th March 2024 from 7:00pm.

The speaker will be  a friend  of our society, Paul Whiting,  with a talk intriguingly entitled  "The Future of Astronomy".  

During our Evening Meetings , as well as our main speakers, there will usually be other topics discussed including:  highlights of the night sky, recent developments in astronomy and classical myths and legends  associated with the constellations. Why not join us? Tea, coffee and biscuits also on offer!

With the aid of Westleton Parish Council, we are pleased to

have been of assistance to help obtain Dark Sky Discovery Site Status

for Westleton Common.



Important Notice

On a DashAstro Observing night, observing will be the first priority and our members generously make available their telescopes for visitors to view.  We have traditional telescopes of various makes and designs as well as newer electronic, fully automated types. 

In order to get the most out of our observing sessions it is important that visitors and members avoid using torches unless they have a red, low intensity filter fitted. We will endeavour to seperate the electronic devices from the conventional telescopes, too, as a further step to reduce the impact of the light from the viewing devices used by the electronic telescope users.

We are able to use the Village Hall on observing evenings so you can warm up inside with a tea or coffee and have a chat with members about all things astronomical.

We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible of any changes to the advertised schedule.
