Past Events - 2021
WORK IN PROGRESS - We're a relatively small Group, but undertake lots of activities, so please bear with us while we try to keep these details up to date.
Live Views of the Moon from Caithness (23rd Jan)
As a trial run for future public events where Caithness Astronomy Group intend to live stream views of the night sky, we took advantage of a brief break in the wintry showers to stream telescopic views of the gibbous Moon to members via Zoom and to the public via our Facebook page.
This short session achieved what was intended - it allowed the techology & equipment required to be tested out, and for the experience obtained to help with future plans. The breaks in the snow showers & clouds allowing for detailed views of the Moon obtained were a welcome bonus!
