2015 Starts at Rodington

The first meeting of the year at Rodington saw ...

45 amateur astronomer, some for the first time, turn out in anticipation of some clear skies to share the wonders of the night sky.  Even before the hall was open a couple of telescopes were scanning the constellations of Orion and Taurus.  Comet Lovejoy had already been spotted before the intermittent clouds rolled in.  Indoors, following a New Years welcome and the usual parish notices, the meeting shared and discussed a short presentation on observing with binoculars, which concluded with 5 objects to find; Comet Lovejoy, M45, M31, M42 and M41.  Following refreshments members could be found in small groups outside searching the skies or inside seeking advice.  The clouds did clear enough before the end of the evening so that we could all have a view of Jupiter.
