Newchurch Observatory is the observing site of the Vectis Astronomical Society (VAS). Based on the Isle of Wight, just off the South coast of the UK, the Society was founded in 1976 and is a friendly group of 70 or so amateur astronomers. The observatory has dark skies all around and is also supported by Dark Wight Skies (http://www.darkwightskies.com). “You are welcome to visit the observatory. So, if you need some help setting up your telescope, would like some advice or are just interested to see what we do, feel free to pay us a visit. Please contact us beforehand if your group visit contains more than 6 people.” Email: director@wightastronomy.org
