Fri 26th, Sat 27th July: Norman Lockyer Observatory, Sidmouth

Meet at 9.30 pm on Friday 25th or 10.00 am on Saturday 26th at Grid ref SY 139 883.

Best approached off the A3052 having crossed the river Sid in Sidford and turning right past the pub. As you go towards Sidmouth town on this road there is a brown sign to the Observatory on the left just before the road crosses the river once more. The Observatory is at the top of the hill on the left.

A moth recording event at the remarkable Observatory with an inspection of the catch on the Saturday morning at 10.00 am. The observatory is on high ground in an area of minimal light pollution and surrounded by mixed woodland about 1km from the coast so should produce an interesting suite of species.

Joint with Norman Lockyer Observatory and Devon Moth Group. Toilet facilities are available and it is possible to camp overnight in the grounds.
