The University Lecture theatres are CLOSED. This is an online Zoom meeting

Our Speaker for January 2022 is
Dr Robert Massey

His talk is entitled
“Moon : Art, Science and Culture”

1st Thursday of the month

The meeting will start at 7:30pm 6th January 2022. A zoom link will be sent to Members beforehand.

 

We support, along with the Federation of Astronomical Societies

the Dark Skies Matter initiative.

Dark Skies Matter seeks to reduce the prevalence and harmful effects of unnecessary, artificial light and to protect fragile oases of natural darkness wherever they are still to be found.
Light pollution is the soiling of the twilight and night-time environment by artificial light. The loss of natural night and the damage and waste caused by light pollution affect us all and should matter to everyone.
