cropped-sgclogo-with-blue-text-long-small1Thanks to Ian and Heather for organising this all day event  firstly at the Space GuardCentre in Knighton  just over the Welsh border.  Spaceguard is home to several wide-field telescopes including one from Cambridge University which is currently been re-commissioned with a suitably way out project name Drax

The tour is a fun couple of hours been taken around the site learning about the work of not only Spaceguard but also other agencies mostly in the USA as well as the good work been done by Amateur observers. Make sure the human race doesn’t go the way of the dinosaurs take a trip here and maybe make a small donation to their Asteroid hunting efforts!


Space is hungry business and after a drive through the Shropshire countryside we all arrived at Heather and Paul’s place and we had a very pleasant BBQ and fun chat.


Thanks to all who organised the day and those who came and made it a happy time!
