Just wondering if we were all planning on meeting at one of the dark sites to try and get a glimpse of PANSTARRS at all? Any plans been discussed yet?

Busy day on Saturday so I'll need a reasonably early night on Fri - but if it's clear I may do Wymeswold with you Felix for a few hours - won't be a late one though. :)


 


Dr Ann is setting up in Abbey Park Friday with the LAS'ers.

Cool-will all depend on weather I guess. What the western horizon like at wymeswold? I didn't give it much attention last time I was there! Will be cool if a few if us get together at wymeswold if it is clear (fingers crossed!)

Ha ha! I barely know myself James! I just follow Dion's planetary video on astronomy shed :) More than happy to show you what I know of it (very little) lol! I know it can do so much more but I am still just getting Into it myself!

Thanks for the links in the other thread felix, i'll watch those later as luckily got another day off, yippee! I could get used to a three day week.

I've just realised i'm on call this Friday night so i won't be able to stray too far from nottingham. So i think even if the weather turns nice i won't be able to come. Sorry.

Shamelessly pinched from a post that Steve put up in the LAS link.


 


I think this is a good picture to show the size and location of PANSTARRS....

Just checked Google maps and if memory serves, Belper has a good view of the western horizon due to it's ridiculous height.


 


I think I may try and pop up to Belper (even mid week if I can), just to try and get a glimpse.


 


Will post a thread in the meets section if going (weather / SWMBO shifts allowing)
