  • If you want more about astronomy, or to get some hands-on observing time with high quality telescopes then the Northland Astronomical Society club nights are your starting point. Each month we focus on a special topic, as well as current affairs in Space and general updates. This month we'll look at a few milestones in a 'Where were you when... style' in recognition of the first successful launch on October 4, 1957 If possible we open the Observatory and track down a few interesting objects to view. Guests welcome.
