On Sat. evening 3rd. March we will enjoy a total lunar eclipse (weather permitting) and so we are arranging an observation night at Cultra. Details as per Terrys following note.
AA ECLIPSE OBSERVING EVENING: The IAA will be having a special eclipse observing event at the Lower Car Park (on the seaward side of the main road), Ulster Folk & Transport Museum, Cultra, Co Down, starting at about 8 p.m. that evening. We'll have a selection of telescopes & binocs to observe Saturn and other night-sky delights, as well as the eclipse, so wrap up warm and bring a flask & some food to sustain you to almost midnight! Bring your own portable telescope & binoculars too, if you have them. Bring your digital camera too - you might get some great shots.
Obviously it depends on the weather: check the IAA website for updates nearer the time: www.irishastro.org
**As per normal, check the forum for any change of detail around 6.30pm on Sat.
Hope to see you there.
