Written by on May 30, 2014

starsI’d been struggling with writing this months blog,, but i sat this morning listening to Darren Hayes/ Savage Garden music, To The Moon and Back came on and it gave me the boost required, so many Thanks Darren for that! So, onwards i go, With so much happening in June, i am not sure where the time has gone but it has come around so fast.

INTERNATIONAL ASTRONOMY SHOW, 7TH & 8TH June, Warwickshire Exhibition Centre, Fosse Way, Leamington Spa CV31 1XN.

” Visitors to WEC can enjoy a day out taking advantage of the excellent disabled and child friendly facilities, on site restaurant and amples of FREE parking. There is even a cash machine on site. With 2250 sqm of exhibition space all on one level, Making the International Astronomy Show the biggest Astronomy Show in the UK “


We are just about ready to face the mass of people that will attend the International Astronomy Show on June 7th & 8th 2014, we will be at stall 46, so come along, drop by, say Hi, and don’t be afraid. Go here and buy your tickets, We look forward to seeing you there >

Normally, it’s not us to promote things like this, but this event was excellent last year, and we only attended as a group of friends meeting up, but it was truly awesome. There are also many lectures taking place over the weekend, Pete Lawrence, Dr Lucie Green (couldn’t leave her out could i Richard?) Mark Thompson, Nick Howes, just to name 4 people that are doing a talk, all info on tickets for these are available on the above website.

Beginners, we are going to be there for YOU, we have all been there, where asking questions seem silly or stupid, but let me tell you, NO question is either of those. You are just starting or you are thinking about starting out in Astronomy, what is up there, takes a long time to learn, and you cant have all the answers. SO, now is your chance to come ask us the questions that YOU think are stupid or silly, we will help you! If you need advice on what Telescope is best for you, how do i attach a camera, What camera is best, What computer programs do i need etc, then we are just the people to ask, and if you live local, then even better, we can help you set up and show you how to get the best out of your new telescope, so make sure you pick up a leaflet of when and where we meet up every month!
