Dear FAS Member Societies

 

I hope you will find the following of interest and pass it on to your Society members.

 

////////////

Meeting Details

Go Space Watch presents a free Public Online Astronomy Lecture on Wednesday 17 June at 7:30 pm BST. The Lecture is “The Far Side of the Moon: Is it Just Aliens?” and will be presented by Dr Julian Onions from the University of Nottingham. 

 

About the Lecture: The Moon is a shy body, it only ever shows one side of itself to the Earth. Before the space age, we had no idea what was on the far side of the Moon. This has led to a number of conspiracy theories that it is a haven for aliens. In this talk, we’ll chart the progress of how we got to see what was on the far side of the Moon, and what we found there. Tin foil hats are optional!

 

About the Speaker: Julian works with computer simulations of large fractions of the universe to understand trends in galaxy formation and evolution. Investigating the tools that help us form and analyse such simulations such as halo finders, tree builders and semi-analytic models. He also does a number of outreach activities, giving talks to astronomy societies and other interested groups such as rotary and U3A, as well as working with schools and scouts/guide groups. He also helps with the teaching of undergraduates in some of the astronomy courses.

Backyard Isolation Astro!

Peter Crowther
 

Hi All,

 

Being confined to Self Isolation and with recent clear sky’s. took the opportunity to set up the DSLR camera in the back garden and shot “wide” angle images.

 

Camera tripod mounted and fixed to Sky-Watcher “Star Adventurer” Eq drive

 

Have posted images on the WAS Yahoo Groups page

 

Note the conjunction of Venus & The Pleiades between April 3rd & 5th

From Worcester, Venus will appear to “pass” through The Pleiades making for good photo opportunities

 

Regards, Clear Sky’s & Keep Safe

I'm sure it will come as no surprise to learn that, following government advice to avoid all unnecessary social contacts, we have cancelled all society events until further notice. We'll let you know when our programme of events returns.

Please stay safe.
