Until then, members receive newsletters with news about astronomy and space, recommendations for books, articles and videos etc.  We also hold discussions via Zoom.

On 11th August, Club members gathered to watch the Perseids meteor shower. This was the first observing session after a 5-month interruption due to lockdown, during which time members used a WhatsApp group to exchange news, photos and comments on their observing, especially of Comet Neowise.   More observing sessions will be arranged, but for now under social distancing rules and no sharing of telescopes
