At Our Next Meeting

Meeting Nights

We meet on the first Monday of the month and we can use the inside facilities from 1830 until 2100 when the centre doors are locked.  We can stay outside as long as we want and that is usually limited by the weather.  

The format of our meetings is changing from talks by the members and then going outside to do our own thing to a slightly more structured approach to cover the needs of the more experienced members and those of the less experienced.  We will still have the talk by one of the members on an astronomy related topic and Damian will still give a talk on his Constellation of the month.  At this point we hope to move outside and locate the "Constellation of the month" in the night sky with tips on star hopping and pointers on how to find the Constellation and any partiular points of interest.

We are also introducing "tip of the month" which could be anything the members bring up.  

A group of like minded people with an interest in Astronomy.

The group formed early in 2011 at the Far Ings Visitor Centre in the shadow of the Humber Bridge meeting every month on the first Monday.

Early in 2013 it was decided by the members to formalise the group and apply to join the Federation of Astronomical Societies (FAS).

The name of North Lincs Astro Society has been retained as that is how we have become known.
