Chelveston Meetings & Starnights:
 
 
            Chelveston Village Hall
 
  
Our meetings at Chelveston Village Hall take place on the third Monday of each month from 8.00pm.
Each meeting  will see either a specially invited visiting guest speaker or a presentation will be given 
by one of our own members.  Regular guides as to what sights to look out for in the night sky are also given. 
Admission to the meeting is £1.
 
In addition, we also use Chelveston Village Hall as the venue for our Friday evening 'Starnight' observing
sessions.  These take place every clear Friday evening and again start at 8.00pm.  Admission to the 'Starnights'
are open to all members and friends.  Tea, Coffee and biscuits are available (to keep the night chill at bay!).  To
confirm that conditions will permit observing please check the front page of this website from around 6.30 on the
evening.  'Starnight' observing sessions are usually held from late August through to mid-May as outside of these
dates the sky does not really get truly 'astronomically dark'.
