8pm this Friday 21st October 2016 we have our own Jacquie Milner talking to us about "A Beginner’s Guide to Meteor Showers".
Social media has given some of the more well-known annual meteor showers a boost in recent years, yet few people seem to know what to expect from them, including where to look! Come along and find out where meteor showers come from, how they usually perform and what the jargon associated with this often neglected branch of astronomy means so you’ll be better prepared for the experience. While not every shower will rain down in a spectacular Hollywood-like fashion there are still some interesting stories to be told, but in the end you never quite know what you’re going to get.
If you have a telescope and would like to know how to use it, or alternatively, would like to show it off to us, please bring it along!
Members' Night is on every Friday night commencing at 8PM (doors open 7:30PM). Guests of members are always welcome.
Please consider the neighbours and drive in and out quietly using low beam only, or better still, parking lights.
