A new feature as of June 2015 has been added - look at the bottom of this web page and there is a new Star Chart exclusively for Grand Cayman

CIAS Next Meeting 8 November 7 PM Pedro's Castle

The next meeting  is on Friday Nov 8th  starting at 7 PM. Usual finish time is by 9 PM The meeting is a few days later than usual so we will be focusing more on the Moon than usual. All are welcome, please remember to dip lights on arrival.

November can be a very mixed month for the weather so if the evening looks more than 50 percent cloudy the meeting will be canceled, You can phone me (no texts or emails please) at 7:00 PM if in doubt 925 7657

This Sunday 3rd of November  a (very) partial solar eclipse is theoretically visible at Sun rise 06:26 AM from the Cayman Islands. It will probably be in the news but for our location the eclipse will be for the die hard enthusiasts. If you want to join me please feel free to email and depending on numbers a suitable location will be found,

If you are intending on viewing it alone please take adequate precautions - especially if you will be pointing cameras with  telescopic lenses at the sun. Remember the eclipse is here briefly for a few minutes  whereas you want to use your eyes for life.

Clear Skies Everyone
