  1. What's new in this club
  2. Thanks Tich thanks for the quick reply. Hopefully, I will see you again later in the year at Lucksall.
  3. Hi Mark can you move Central Midland stargazers please? Cheers
  4. You may have noticed that we have created a new heading, above the banner, called 'Clubs'. The plan is to move all the existing social groups and observatories to this new area. Currently there are 17 different groups some more active than others. You need to advise me, in this thread, whether you wish your social group to be moved, otherwise the group will be closed and archived. I look forward to hearing from someone within group for us to take necessary admin action.
  5. Glad you all enjoyed it. Regards Pete
  6. Thank you all at NLO, I had a great day with you yesterday :-)

Live metior detection. Guest speakers - details and tickets available at our website www.normanlockyer.com. Looking forward to seeing you all next weekend.
  8. It was just the other day that I've seen the London planetarium which was in Marlybone road London just near regents park has moved... Recently a journal which I've been visiting for a number of years said that the world's oldest planetarium is in America... Mmmm... The planetarium is a wonderful contribution for science and human sociology it is just a real shame there isn't more of them, it was probably one of the greatest wonders of being a child... The tent and the telescope will always be the strengths of science!
  9. thanks for letting me know about that Katen - we will definitely be popping in to see that!
