Somerset Levels Stargazers is a group of enthusiastic amateur astronomers interested in looking at the stars, planets and anything else in space. We meet at least once a month to pass on our knowledge and share our interest in astronomy with people from the Somerset Levels.
During our meetings there will be a presentation on a different topic each month, also we will discuss what will be happening in the skies in the month ahead. In addition we talk about a constellation prominent that month. We also catch up on the latest news from spaceflight and the astronomical world. After our meeting we conduct an observing session on site under dark skies if the sky is clear. Tea and coffee will be provided.
Our last meeting of 2018 is this Wednesday 28th 8pm in Othery Village Hall.
This month will be looking at the astronomical highlights for December 2018 and January 2019 and have a main talk on the historic flight of Apollo 8 around the Moon 50 years ago next month from club member Brian Fraser. Along with this as its our last meeting before Christmas Dennis has devised a quiz for a little bit of fun and as in other years there will be some festive food and drink for you to enjoy and if you want to bring something to the table to share that would be great.
To help cover costs, we ask members to pay either £2.50 per month, or alternatively take out an annual membership at a cost of £20.00.
