The annual Horncastle Astronomy Weekend takes
place each September, starting every 2nd Friday.
A very good event.

2021 dates: under review.
Organised by Paul and Lorraine Money.
It will be based at the Village Hall, Minting,
near Horncastle, Lincolnshire LN9 5RX.

For on-line information on what to look out for in the night sky each month.
The Sun, Moon, our Comets and Planets
Solar sites to check regularly are:
Meteors, Comets &c.
Meteor showers are somewhat unpredictable, so it is a good idea to look out for meteors before and after the predicted peaks.
You might catch an unexpected display.
Useful Meteor Shower pages and Comet information.
For accurate timing data for Lincolnshire see Paul Money's Night Scenes (Astrospace Publications).
Prefer dark skies? Worried about the impact of light pollution on wildlife?
If you are fed up with tacky, sentimental, energy-wasting and potentially
harmful lighting of buildings, radio masts and monuments and at holiday
resorts, ports &c. check out:

There's little enough intelligence here on Earth, so we could do with it!
