IMPORTANT - WAS meeting on Thursday 23rd September 2021

Michael Morris
 

Firstly, apologies for the short notice.
Our first post-lockdown meeting will take place next Thursday (23rd September 2021) at Crown East Scout starting at 8:30pm.  Please do not arrive early as scouts will be leaving.
Several committee members have recently left the society, so the first subject of the meeting will have to be the future of the society.  If there is time after this, there will a short talk entitled "Beneath Southern Skies".
Please wear a facemask if you can.

Chris Livingstone

The Royal Observatory Greenwich's 13th Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition has announced its shortlist of extraordinary celestial scenes.

Some are multi-exposure and not too 'astronomical' but are well worth a look. URL below:
