Autumn 2009 Programme

The Milky Way

The club has some great talks lined up this autumn, hopefully leading up to a clear night sky meeting at the beginning of December. You can always check the details of the next meeting on the Meetings page, and of course we’ll continue to post reminders closer to the date on the Club News RSS feed, together with a write up of each meeting after the event. Here’s what you’ve got to look forward to:

Wednesday 2nd September

Carolin Crawford from the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge will give a talk on cosmology and dark energy.

Wednesday 7th October

Susan Conway from the Open University will talk about her work on gullies on Mars. She will also describe advances in our understanding of the surface of the planet.

Wednesday 4th November

Dave Eagle from Bedford Astronomical Society will give a presentation on Charles Piazzi Smyth’s observatory. He will also talk about modern amateur astronomy on Tenerife.

Wednesday 2nd December

This will be a night sky meeting, with (weather permitting) an observing session. It will be held at the Vinter Room as usual and, in the event of inclement weather, there will be an alternative presentation indoors.
