Next meeting of the Society is Thursday 15th October at 7pm by Zoom

The next meeting of the Society is Thursday 15th October at 7pm by Zoom.  Bob Wright from Usk Society will present on the planet Venus.  Venus is presently an early morning object, it rises in the east in the constellation of Leo,  before the Sun at around 4 am.  For those early birds it is hard to miss as it is very bright at more than magnitude -4.  It has recently had a lot of media interest owing to the detection of a so called “biomarker” gas in its atmosphere – Phosphine.  The work was done by an international team of astronomers, led by led by Prof. Jane Greaves from Cardiff University, who many of you may remember gave an excellent talk to Abergavenny Astronomy Society in March 2019.

As usual the meeting will start at 7pm by Zoom, the details of which are below.
