May Meeting - Dr John Rogers

Our next monthly meeting is on Thursday, 2nd May 2019 at 7:30pm.

Jupiter and the Juno mission

The talk will deal with recent advances in our understanding of Jupiter's massive atmosphere, especially from the Juno orbiter and from ongoing amateur imaging. The spectacular JunoCam images are revealing remarkable features in the polar regions and fascinating details in the atmospheric circulations and cycles that we are studying from the ground.

Dr John Rogers

Visitors are most welcome to attend. We charge just £5 (£4 Junior/Student guests) per meeting to help cover the cost of the room hire.
