Our next stargazing meeting in Regent’s Park will be held in late January, the date will be announced here when closer to the date. In 2020, the year of our tenth anniversary we are planning some social evenings. Let us know what you think about this idea.
Meanwhile the organisers wish current and would-be Irregulars a peaceful and enjoyable Christmastide and a Happy New Year.
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.
