We hope you enjoyed the party! There was plenty of food for everyone, and, despite cloudy skies for some of the evening, we did enjoy a long, clear spell with fantastic views of the winter sky. Some members set up their scopes in the field behind the centre, and we also made good use of the 18.25-inch scope, which gave crystal clear views of M42, and tracked quite well.

We also spotted a few bright Geminids, even though we missed the shower's peak this year.
