Club news during Covid-19 measures 

Monthly online lectures will start on 14th September, and the list of speakers, which includes renowned astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell Burnell, will be posted here soon.   Lectures will be held via Zoom, and open to all.  The Zoom link will be posted here.

Until then, members receive newsletters with news about astronomy and space, recommendations for books, articles and videos etc.  We also hold discussions via Zoom.

Observing sessions have not been held since the lockdown began in March but members have used a WhatsApp group to exchange news, photos and comments on their observing, especially of Comet Neowise.
