Our date for our November stargazing evening meeting will be posted here, by our newsletter and on our social media accounts (details here ).
We have a special meeting at lunchtime on 11 November to observe the transit of Mercury. See here https://www.bakerstreetastro.org/transit-of-mercury-2019/
Remember, if you are new to becoming an Irregular, you don’t need to own and bring to our meetings a telescope or binoculars – there are usually a dozen or so telescopes of various sizes and designs for you to look through. Of course if you do own an instrument you can carry to the Hub then please bring it with you!
We meet whether the sky is clear or cloudy! Sometimes the weather forecast for the day just looks awful. In extreme cases, we might outright cancel a meeting however, in the majority of cases, we go ahead anyway. Provided it’s not raining, we gather even under cloudy skies and enjoy an evening of social astronomy chat. Often this results in rewards for those who choose to attend, as London’s unpredictable cloud cover can vanish without warning – then it’s every telescope for itself! We highly recommend coming along even if it looks cloudy. Even if the sky has nothing to show us, there’s always something interesting to see and hear at one of our star parties.
