British Astronomical Association Exhibition
The Godlee Observatory will be open to the public on Saturday 22nd June as part of the British Astronomical Association Exhibition. The society will have a stand at the exhibition displaying details of our activities. Everyone is welcome to come down and see us, more details can be found here.
Two new projects have now been launched. A messier marathon is now being undertaken, the aim is for the membership to image all these objects within one year. The second challenge is to image objects in the solar system. We would like at least one image from every member!
Details can be found in the projects section.
