Isle of Wight Star Party in March

In three weeks the inaugural Isle of Wight Star Party will be underway. It runs for four nights from 6th – 10th March and is being organised by Vectis Astronomical Society. It is not a public outreach event, so is not being advertised in the mainstream press. Outreach events are all very well, and VAS does plenty of these, but it is good to have events run by astronomers for astronomers with some serious observing without interruption. I just hope the weather co-operates and we can have plenty of fun and observing!

So far we have got 35 people coming, with more likely to book nearer the time. If you are interested click the link at the top of this post for full details.
Of course, I’ll be there for a couple of days and nights at least, so photos will appear here.
