SAS Storm Keele Observatory



Over a score of Society members ...



scaled Observatory Hill (Keele) to be greeted by James Albinson and Jacco van Loon who guided us through an enjoyable and informative evening.  A tour of the refurbished Keele Earth and Space Observatory was accompanied with an impressive insight to the work carried out from the improved site.  The 24" Thornton reflector looked impressive but it was the 1874 12" Grubb refractor, relocated from Oxford in 1962, that won the hearts of the visitors providing splendid views of Venus, Jupiter and of course the Moon.  Jacco whetted our appetite at the start of the evening, with views of the setting Sun, using a purpose built Hydrogen-Alpha solar scope mounted on top of a 3.5" skywatcher refractor.  For those who missed the event or wish to return the Observatory is open to the public every Tuesday evening and Saturday afternoon, just visit their website for more information www.astro.keele.ac.uk/observatory/
