Is there anyone in or near West Wales on this site, besides me? The West Wales Astronomy Group will hopefully be setting up a star party at Bluestone soon. I haven't been to Bluestone but I understand it's a nicely self-contained resort and suitable for astronomy gatherings (though one local says it gives off plenty of light pollution). There'll be talks as well as observing sessions and it should be pretty interesting if anyone else would like to get involved. Hopefully I'll be able to tell you more soon. There's a meeting in a couple of weeks to arrange it . . .
Oh, and if you're a zoo member, do please tell the good West Wales folks that I am not the only person in the world who is apt to see barred spirals in my hot chocolate.
