Sorry I missed the meeting too.  We are still being cautious and not attending meetings physically, and also have increasing difficulty. 

, OK

Here is the institute of physics programme which is a good one including some astronomy talks.  Mostly virtual but not all.

 

Here is a picture of a bright sporadic meteor in late September. Taken by my meteor camera which faces east so including over the north sea,  a part of UK Mon network operated automatically and remotely.

The presentation by Dr. Steve Barrett (14/10/21) was only attended by a few but those absent missed a really excellent talk. His visuals were 1st class and his talk was fascinating.
 
Please look out for future talks and make an appearance if you can.

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.

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