Hey all, genuinely so jealous of ye all- it sounded like a great weekend. I'm definitely going to go next year. I'd go for September too- although I know my vote doesn't count for much!! But i'm more than willing to take a bit of cold (a bit more whiskey) to see possibly longer and darker skies.

And congrats to Roy for originally organizing this- hope it continues to grow next year and for years to come.

Sean

Hi Sean..

1st off everyone's vote counts,
so u have a say in this as much as
anyone else.. My vote is also for September but at the end of the day we have to go with the masses and if they say Aug then it's Aug and (fingers crossed) if they say Sept then it's whoop de do da.. Watching the early autumn constellations moving across the skies and giving way in the early morning to the winter constellations.. YUMMMMM..

Cheers Roy

Okay Guys and Gals..

How do people think about holding SSP 2015 in Oct?
I was thinking the weekend of Oct 9th to Oct 11th ..
I think we should try cement some dates for next year
before they all get snapped up..
I was looking at Starry Night and Astronomical Twilight
occurs around 8.45pm giving us about 9.5 hours of observing
before the sun starts to rise..
So Guys don't be shy, sound off here and we can get the dates
sorted and have a sticky for the 2015 Skelligs Star Party put up
here on IFAS.

Cheers Roy

Roy, Generally you can count me in for next year ... for almost any weekend except this one ... sorry.

(Logic being that this would likely be the first weekend of the European rugby cup (or whatever name they have on it at that stage), so I appreciate this would not be a factor for everyone.)

I would still prefer end of school holidays but other than that I am indifferent to when it's held and will plan to be there regardless. Cheers see you there!
