Monday 24th September – Next Meeting

For our next meeting we welcome back Andy Burns, Chairman of the Wiltshire AS and co-director of the Griffin Educational Observatory, Andalucia.
The title of his talk is

Welcome to the Dark Side: 
Dark nebulae, discovery and views

It should be of interest to everyone, with plenty of pictures I am sure.

Andy may or may not mention this particular nebula but above is the famous Horse Head Nebula in the constellation of Orion.  The picture was taken by The European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope in Chile.

Usual time and venue: 7:30pm upstairs in The Kings Head, Abergavenny, next to the town hall.
