It’s almost Autumn (astronomically the season starts on Sep 23 at the equinox), the days are getting shorter, dark sky observing hours are becoming longer, so time for our September utban stargazing session.
Please join us at the Hub, Regent’s Park on 17 September for an evening of stargazing and astro-chat. All are welcome: it’s free, fun and family-friendly.
Dates for future meetings will be posted here, by our newsletter and on our social media accounts (details here ).
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.
