Henry Dixon Hall
Rivenhall, Witham, Essex, CM8 3HR

Everyone is invited to this regular monthly meeting of the North Essex Astronomical Society, an informal social evening that includes a presentation, refreshments, and raffle. These events are suitable for beginners and older children and a great chance to meet local astronomers and find out about their observing activities at Great Notley Country Park and Abberton Reservoir. Doors open at 19:30, talk starts at 20:00. A small on the door fee is payable to help cover costs.

The speaker for September is renowned astro-imager Nik Szymanek and his talk is entitled “Wonders of the Sky.”

It’s an introduction to meteorological photography, explaining clouds, rainbows, haloes, glories, sunsets etc. NEAS are told there are lots of pretty pictures, a tiny little bit of science and is suitable for all audiences.
Nik has written a monthly astro-imaging column in Astronomy Now magazine for many years as well as three books on astronomical imaging. Head over to his website for a look at some of his amazing images.

NEAS is holding AGM at the start of the meeting where they will be electing officials for the coming year and hearing a summary of the year’s activity. For this meeting the doors will open at 7.15, the AGM will commence at 7.30pm and the talk at 8pm (all times approx)
Masks (unless exempt) must be worn on arrival and when moving around the hall.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
