SOLAR GRAVITY 2018 - 5th-8th July
« on: 21:28:36, 14 March, 2018 »
Drum-roll please..... following the success of the last Solar Gravity in Stonehenge in 2014 we are very pleased to announce.....




In order to hopefully make it easier for people to join us than Stonehenge was we've found a new campsite in the Chilterns, so please come and join us from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th July 2018 at Home Farm Caravan & Camping, City Road, Radnage, High Wycombe HP14 4DW

It would be really great to get as many people as possible to gravitate to the Chilterns to hopefully enjoy the sun but also the merriment that is typical of our Gravity events - the whole of the UKAI admin team will be there ... what's your excuse ?

If you would like to join us please go to http://www.homefarmradnage.co.uk/ and book directly with the campsite, who offer soft and hard standing with or without electric hook-up and it's on a "first come - first served" so be sure to book soon.

If you do book, just so we get an idea of interest/numbers, just let us know on this thread  :thumbup:

If you're in two minds and need convincing just have a watch of this... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afPXKFAdnDk.... if this doesn't convince you, nothing will  :yes: :scare: :thumbup:

Hopefully see you in July !

Carole - it's just after the summer solstice so you'll only get a couple of hours between midnight and 3am when it will be dark enough(ish)... the moon is third quarter on the 6th so will be in the sky too !

Oh yes, wasn't thinking.  Typing is playing up again, gave up on chrome and am now on IE.
It needs another reboot to the flux capacitor.  Lol

Hi Carole, although you will have a couple of hours for night time imaging, the solar gravity event is primarily for solar daytime stuff, it's more of a social gathering where we can do the usual stuff, eg. talk about astro things all day long, but in the warmth of the sun, and do some solar observing and imaging, and enjoy a few beers around a campfire in the evening, again probably talking about astro stuff, or for the more mentally advanced, we may even get into quantum entanglement - it's a good chance to enjoy the delights of the summer with astro friends without the freezing toes! :)

PS. I'll look into the flux capacitance vectors again! ;)
