It's time for this year's summer social. A chance to catch up with other members over food and drink. The time and venue will be announced in due course. Booking will be required, but all are welcome.

the perseids
It's time for our annual pilgrimage to view the Perseid meteor shower as near to the peak as possible. Unfortunately the Moon will be up around the peak making faint meteors hard to see. On the positive side, Saturn is to the south early in the evening and there may be a chance to catch a setting Jupiter too! The venue will be announced at a later date and a clear night would be welcome. Keep watching @NorthantsAstro and for details.

telescopic topics
A special Telescopic Topics since all of our main contributors are away chasing some solar eclipse in the USA! So it really is a members' evening where short, or long, contributions are invited on any vaguely astronomical topics. We will have a presentation of the night sky in August. There's plenty to be seen, so you'll have no excuse not to get the binoculars and telescopes out as the days grow shorter. Guests very welcome. An account of the Perseids seen at the section outing on the 12th.
