Introducing Crago Corner - The Crago Observatory Renovation Blog

Members might notice a link to Crago Corner in the User Menu on the left hand side of the site. (Note you must be logged in to see this) or take this link: Work begins | The Astronomical Society (

Fire Season - no fires at Wiruna - 1 October 2020 to 31 March 2021

Fire Season

The statutory Bush Fire Danger Period runs from 1 October to 31 March. If you are planning to light a fire in the open during this time, you will need a Fire Permit. This means - NO burning off at Wiruna, and NO use of the incinerators (as they don’t have a spark arrest system) unless YOU want to apply for a permit! Please take care this summer.
