Sadly our venue at Garlogie Hall is no longer available for our regular monthly stargazing. We are actively looking for a new venue. If you have any suggestions, please get in touch. As soon as we can arrange a suitable location, we will resume our monthly get togethers and dates will be posted.
There might be an opportunity to spot a comet with a pair of binoculars or a telescope later in the year.
For example, 62P/Tsuchinshan will be approaching the Sun in late 2023, with its closest approach to the Sun on 24 December, and its closest point to the Earth on 30 January 2024. At this time of the year it will be within the constellation of Leo, but with a predicted maximum magnitude of 9 you’ll be unable to see this with the naked eye.
