Don't forget - next Friday is our chance to view an eclipse of the moon. The moon rises at about 9:30 pm and will be in total eclipse (reddish colour) as it rises. To get a good view of this we plan to view it from the public footpath on the Golf course that runs from Wrenshot Lane to Peacock Lane. This has a low eastern horizon which the observatory site does not have. The location of the footpath is shown in red on the map on our website.
We will be setting up a portable telescope and you can bring your own cameras and tripods. We will be there from about 9 pm. The eclipse ends at around 11:45 pm.
Please park either adjacent to the Primary School or on Pheasant Walk or Egerton and walk to the footpath entrance. Please avoid parking along Wrenshot Lane near the footpath entrance. Viewing is, of course, totally dependant on having clear skies, so check the sky before you set out!
If it looks like being clear enough I will send out a text alert on the day.
John Anderson, HLCO.
