There will also be a meeting the following week on Thursday 17th at 7pm, to avoid confusion the link for that meeting will be published later.  The meeting on the 17th will be the Mike Thomas Lecture.  For those not familiar with this event Mike was a founding member of the Usk Astronomical Society and passed away a few years ago.  A talk is arranged each year before Christmas in his memory.  The talk will be remembering another old friend – the Arecibo Observatory which very recently collapsed catastrophically.  This observatory had be operating for 57 years and made many breakthrough discoveries.  This talk, presented by Nick Busby, will look back over its illustrious history.  Unfortunately, this year you will have to supply your own mince pies!
