Darling Hill Observatory Will OPEN Tonight, 30 October (Sunday)


Posted by sasadmin, October 30th, 2011

Greetings, fellow astrophiles!

We have decided to try to make something of this weekend’s Public Observing Session and will be opening Darling Hill tonight around 7:30 p.m. It will be cold and still partly overcast, but we hope the clouds keep to a minimum to allow us to reclaim some of the observing time lost over the last few completely overcast weekends.

Again, dress for extra-cold conditions. You will be the only source of heat at the observatory tonight, so try to keep as much of it for yourself as you can.

NOTE: Those of you present (or looking North-West) around 7:40 p.m. will be treated to the only International Space Station fly-over. In the absence of cloud cover, it will be hard to miss!
