This evening’s meeting, 28th November

Tonight Geoff Hill will give a talk on the constellation of Orion.  This iconic constellation is a large an obvious feature in the winter sky – a constellation that everyone with any interest in astronomy will immediately recognise.  It is also a constellation that has some of the best examples of star forming nebulae, reflection nebulae and dark nebulae.  Many of the stars in the constellation are close and bright and represent stages in stellar evolution from the new born, through middle age to old age.  Whether you are a seasoned observer or an absolute novice this will be a talk well worth listening to.

Nick Busby will also present an introduction to observing some easy to find open star clusters.  These objects are a great starting point for new observers as they are bright, easy to locate and in many cases can be seen in binoculars.  This is also a good time of year for observing them and a great way to cut your teeth in observational astronomy.

Usual venue, the King’s Head, 7:30 pm.

See you there.
