Lecture Schedule 2021-22

From September 2021 we shall hold public lectures using Zoom, and this will continue until December or we are able to resume lectures at University College Cork. For the Zoom link, you can email info@corkastronomyclub.com, or better still sign up for our guest bulletins.

The Zoom meetings will be on the second Monday of the month, plus occasional extra dates for especially prominent speakers. The centre piece of each meeting is a lecture by an invited guest. Monthly meetings will also include a briefing on what to look for in the sky that month. There will also be club announcements, and visitors will be able to get a feel for our actrivities.

Start time 7.30 pm. The formal part of each meeting finishes at 9.00 pm, though there will be an opportunity to join the meeting early, or stay for a few extra minutes at the end.

Here are the forthcoming season’s events as arranged so far. Further speakers and topics will be announced.
