UPCOMING TALK 2nd NOVEMBER 2023
The talk is about 'Pseudo-Astronomy', delivered by Steve Tonkin in person.
A little about Steve:
I am a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and have authored many articles and several books on practical aspects of astronomy. I taught astronomy to adults and children for more than 40 years. I am the Dark Skies Adviser to both the Federation of Astronomical Societies and the International Dark Sky Reserve on the Cranborne Chase AONB, and split my time between these and doing astronomical outreach. As well as astronomical societies in Britain and abroad, I frequently speak to Rotary and Probus clubs, U3A groups, and schools/youth organisations. I have a monthly column in BBC Sky at Night Magazine, for which I also write equipment and book reviews.
Please arrive by 7:30pm
TALK WILL START AT 8:00 PM PROMPT.

Established in 1990, we are a friendly astronomical society that is open to anyone with an interest in Astronomy, space exploration and similar topics. People with all levels of experience are welcome, especially beginners.
We have weekly club meetings, where we have talks on what's up in the sky during the month, the latest scientific discoveries, and also every month, a guest speaker who would deliver a talk on a specialist topic. We've had speakers from the BBC Sky at Night programme, as well as renowned professors and scientists from well known organisations.
