December Meet up + Comet chasing.

Recommended Posts

Bino-viewer

Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

My 2000th Post !!!  💫  (do i get free Dark Site Membership next month to mark it...?? 😉)

 

As its been 3 months......How about an observing meet up for December / Christmas ?

 

My suggestion is the following weekend to this one which is  Saturday 15th or Sunday 16th

 

I thought i'd add the Sunday as 'back up' ; the Comet 46P will be at Perihelion that day (to the Earth)

 

The moon shouldn't be too bad.......setting around midnight time i think.

 

Any thoughts ?  I'm happy with Belper or Wymeswold, and for a change i am free all weekend, the Friday before as well 😀

I fancy some comet hunting. Sat would be better for me. As long as the w plays ball. Belper would be my choice if we're observing.

I can do either, but if its cloudy on the Saturday, Sunday maybe is an option too.

 

The comet will be well placed on both days of course, and Saturday is closer to 

the Geminid meteor shower peak as well. 

 

I think if i had to choose a site i would be inclined to pick Wymeswold for its better 

facilities. I'm easy either way though.

 

And this :

It was not my intention to arrange an official monthly meet on my own back.

Its upto the admin to arrange that.

But as we haven't had one since September, i thought i'd suggest this, especially 

with this comet putting in an appearance.

I should of checked with swmbo. It's her works do, so I'll be comet hunting from the back garden😯

 

I'm afraid the Admin have been busy with their real lives and unable to arrange a monthly meets, but, as always, members are free to call meets as they wish. Things should be back on track going in to the new year though.
