Sudborough Meetings

Sudborough Village Hall
 
 
Our meetings in Sudborough Village Hall have been held on the second Thursday of each month, however with
effect from September 2011 they are transferring to the first Thursday of each month.  This change will provide
a greater gap beween the meetings at Sudborough and Chelveston which we hope will provide more members
the opportunity to attend both meetings.  Each meeting at Sudborough commences at 8.00pm.
 
The Sudborough meetings follow the same format as those at Chelveston in that a 'popular level' presentation is
given on a particular aspect which is then followed after a break (if the skies are clear) by an observing session
in the grounds at the rear of the village hall.  Presentations are provided either by members of the society or
by visiting speakers.
 
Past meetings at Sudborough have included presentations on the Solar System and advice on choosing telescopes
and binoculars for astronomical use.
 
 
 
Next Meeting:  Thursday 11th August
This evening will see a presentation on 'The Summer Triangle' and will offer an insight into the variety of objects
that can be seen within the boundaries of the constellations of Lyra, Cygnus and Aquila.  After the presentation
we will be holding an observing session to view the Moon and hopefully spot some of this years brighter
Perseid Meteors.
