THIS EVENT IS CONFIRMED ON
We will be running a Blackheath Observing session on Saturday 13 May from 9.30pm until around 11.30pm.
The Moon will be absent during our session and the main event of the evening will surely be Jupiter. At around 9.30, Io will transit, casting its shadow across Jupiter’s clouds. So come along and enjoy this and other objects before the bright summer skies intrude.
We will have at least three scopes available at the session, but please feel free to come along with your own. The more the merrier!
Blackheath is quite exposed, so please wrap up warm.
We will meet at our usual spot just north of Talbot Place at 9.30pm. Talbot Place is the first left off Goffers Road after the Tea Hut. Parking is free after 6.30pm. A map of the site can be found here – http://flamsteed.info/observing/stargazing-events/blackheath-stargazing/ .
