Guildford Astronomical Society

 

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
Lunar Sketching

“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.
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.
