Re: Newsletter

Hello Colin.


I hope all is well with you and with KAG.


Richard has invited me to become involved with the newsletter and with that in mind, it's in the process of being re-organised to become a newsletter more geared around our society. It will still  have the usual bi-annual reports, committee information, LYRA programme, Jim Stellar's article etc; but the remaining part of the newsletter is being changed . For example, there will be observation pages, back to basic astronomy pages, meteor page, comet page, planet page, articles page and so on. There will also be a page for LYRA members to publish their views, thoughts, poetry, observations, astro photos and drawings, etc. In fact, anything astronomical they might wish to send in to us for publication. I also hope to have a page where members will be invited to send in a brief outline about themselves and how they got into astronomy and what equipment they have. It's felt it will help us come to know each other better, which is turn should create a better bonding society.


My reason for writing to you is to ask if you would like to make a regular contribution to the newsletter for the 'Brief Bio' page, the NASA page, the Comet page and perhaps reports about your affiliated Kessingland group observation reports and programmes.


I suggested perhaps the newsletter could be published on a quarterly basis, one for each season, but Richard feels every four months might be better instead of every three months. However, it's being put forward in the committee meeting next month for final approval.


Would you be interested to make contributions to the newsletter?


Best regards.




PS: Did you see the fireball on Thursday night at about 10.20. It shot out from just under the Plough and had a blue head of about mag -6 and a firework sparkly tail. It was a beautiful thing to witness.



Hello Ron-I have seen several fireballs of that description but unfortunately I must have missed that one-the SPA Meteor Section always welcomes those reports and I have sent several in past years to them.

I would very much like to contribute information about what's happening in the night sky with Comet reports and also a bit about NASA and Space travel in general and also a regular update on KAG although not much has been happening of recent and only a few clear nights have there been so I have made the effort to do something when the night skies are clear although not as much as I would like to because of the inconsistent weather-thankyou for asking Ron.
