Monthly online lectures 

Monday 26th October is a red letter day in Cork Astronomy Club’s calendar. We shall be honoured to welcome Ireland’s leading astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell Burnell who will present a lecture on “Pulsars, magnetars and fast radio bursts”.   All lectures start at 8pm.

While Covid regulations persist we are holding our monthly lectures online.  The list of speakers includes England’s Astronomer Royal Martin Rees.  Lectures will be held via Zoom, and are open to all.  The Zoom links will be posted here.  Start time 8 pm.

For Club members, there are workshops and observers meetings, likewise held over Zoom, as well as occasional outdoor observing sessions held in accord with current Covid regulations.  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.
