Helo from North Wales

Hi all,

Well Im new to astronomy and I finally went a bought a telescope after moving from lightest brightest Essex to North Wales. 

I’ve been interested in star gazing for twenty five years after experiencing the night sky in Australia. On seeing the milky way for the first time I was glued to the spot looking up, opened mouthed, arm raised, finger pointing for about 3 hours, a humbling experience I won’t forget.

A stary night where I did live would be about 10 stars  However up here there a quite a few more but quite a bit more cloud too.  So I’m looking forward to my first clear night and learning the sky  

Well that’s me done I’m off to read some threads  

Thanks all

Hello and welcome top SGL Andy 🙂 

Wishing you clear skies to explore your new darkness! (although living in S Wales I understand the relative rarity of cloud-free nights!)

Helen

Hi Andy - if you're near to Llandudno, the North Wales Astronomy Society meet nearby for observing sessions on 2nd Tuesday, and for a talk on the 4th Wednesday of the month. 

Although we're not local, we have friends who are, so we try to get to their talk meetings. 

Details on their website. http://www.northwalesastro.co.uk/About-Us/

Hi and welcome .

We have recently moved to North Wales. We own a few acres in Llanrhos, including our own "hill". Some lovely viewing here, and sure you will love it.

Cheers

Richard
