Observing session @ Chorlton-cum-Hardy Golf Club
Mar 28 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

We’ve planned a local observing session on the evening of Monday, 28 March, at Chorlton Golf Club, around 8 to 10pm. The event is weather-dependent – at the moment (Sunday, 27 March) the forecast is for partial cloud. A final decision as to whether the event will go ahead will be made at 7pm on Monday, 28 March. Important: Please look out for a WhatsApp message and/or email for confirmation that the event will still go ahead.  

The club looks to be a great local place for this: easy access to drive or walk to, hard surfacing, few lights and a safe (private) location. There are good unobstructed views to the south. 

The plan is for naked eye or binocular observing to gain familiarity with the constellations. We might have some telescopes to look at M42 and the Pleiades etc. 

All welcome. 

For further information or queries please contact the Society at: wdas.chair@gmail.com 
or contact: Phil on 07786 440030

Fingers crossed for clear skies.
