We are back at lecture theatre M of Surrey University for our meetings. It will also be available to members via Zoom
Our Speaker for October 2022 in Lecture theatre M is
Mary McIntyre FRAS
Her talk and demonstration workshop is entitled
“During this workshop Mary will teach you how to sketch the Moon using pencil. During the workshop you Mary will talk you through how to create a sketch of the whole lunar disc and also how to sketch craters up close. You are strongly encouraged to sketch along as she will show you step by step, in realtime with a camera pointing at her hands. Even if you think you can’t even draw a stickman please give it a try because you may be very surprised with your results. At the end Mary will show you she approaches lunar sketching with pastels on black paper.”
1st Thursday of the month
The meeting will start at 7:30pm 6th October 2022 in the lecture theatre and 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.
