Next Public Lecture 6th December 2021 – Galaxies – One Gigayear at a time

Dr Julian Onions is part of an outreach team established by Nottingham University. More about this lecture .

The meeting will be by Zoom.  If you are not a member, you can receive the Zoom link by subscribing to our free monthly guest bulletin .  Our lectures are open to all.

When we can, which will not be before February 2022, we hope to return to meeting in person in a UCC lecture theatre.  Our committee is keeping this under review.

Since September 2019, lectures have been conducted entirely by Zoom with speakers including leading Irish astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Astronomer Royal Martin Rees, Royal Astronomical Society president Prof Emma Bunce, Seth Shostak of California’s SETI Institute, and TED speaker Prof Ann-Marie Madigan.

For Club members, there are workshops, observing sessions, a members’ newsletter with news about astronomy and space, recommendations for books, articles and videos etc.  We also maintain a WhatsApp group for members to exchange news, photos, advice and comments on their observing.
