Hello ..

Is there still people interested in amateur astronomy Clube? An/or any one that would like to be a monitor of astronomy?

The CCVAlg in Faro is proposing both of these solutions. Contact them if you are interested!

Hi folks - now July 2016......

A very challenging discussion  but a long time since anyone has posted anything , how are all the plans coming along ?


Although registered with Angloinfo in Dordogne(France),  I no longer live there.  Costa Blanca has proven to be too hot and I am looking for a more even climate and greener landscapes  hence South Portugal which I shall explore after the summer heat.

I have been looking for a bunch of kindred spirits to get together and in some way shape or form to do  astronomy, cosmology, radio astronomy, spectroscopy.... as hobbies but without equations. Just to have fun learning and studying.

I will be looking for a property which allows good astronomy observation but without burrying myself alive in the middle of nowhere.  (...... ever heard of the Goldilocks syndrome....)

Any takers ????

Cordialement

Hi Danny,

If you look back in the posts to 19 June 2013 at 9:11 and my response at 18:21,  you will get information of a stargazing opportunity inear Portimao.  Expensive perhaps, but much closer to you.  Regards
