Monthly online lectures 

Monday 11th January sees our next public lecture, when leading cosmologist and the UK’s Astronomer Royal, Martin Rees, will give a talk called  “Our Future in Space”.   Lectures start at 8 pm, and while Covid regulations persist, are held by Zoom.

The list of speakers includes Royal Astronomical Society president Prof Emma Bunce, and are open to all.  The Zoom links will be posted here.

For Club members, there are also workshops and observers meetings, likewise held over Zoom, as well as occasional outdoor observing sessions when Covid regulations permit.  Members receive newsletters with news about astronomy and space, recommendations for books, articles and videos etc.

Members have a WhatsApp group to exchange news, photos and comments on their observing.
