OK 90th anniversary discovery of Pluto! Slide set ready.
Been busy running my astro course on relativity, also on Tuesday..
I hope can get to Three Kings via Hanley Castle, despite Upton road closure near Upton from flooding.
Trying to get to Broadheath last night proved impossible, A4103 and A449 closed. Malvern ok.

I'll probably try to make this as it is just down the road from me. Just as an aside, it will be the 90th anniversary, not the 75th.

I have put a slide set together on my laptop.
The Three Kings . .. Hanley Castle now has a regular programme of themed discussion evenings on occasional Tuesdays. The idea is to have informal talks and discussion about an anniversary of significant activity. It's not a formal talk and people come and go from 8pm until late. However they do like to have someone there who knows a little above the average on the topic, to give a brief overview and answer questions. Visual aids are great but don't expect to project anything.
On Tuesday 18th Feb the subject is Pluto, as it is, iirc, the 75th anniversary of its discovery. I have been asked if any of the IOP local committee, friends, or members of WAS would be able to show up and provide some level of "expert" knowledge. Indeed several people could go.
Let me know if you think you can help, but the event will happen anyway, so you can just show up after 8pm..
