Friday 4th November was scheduled for an evening of star gazing. Unfortunately it was raining. That may have contributed to a fairly small turn-out – a pity because it was an interesting evening. A sausage and mash supper was followed by a very informative talk on the sky at night given by Dave Murton, chairman of the Orwell Astronomical Society. As the talk finished, the skies cleared and we were able to do some real star gazing. Highlight for me was seeing our nearest neighbour Galaxy – Andromeda – just the odd 20 million million million miles away.
