Re: Tuesday Feb 18 8pm... Thee Kings pub discussion on discovery of Pluto

Michael Morris
 

It's just down the road from me, so I don't anticipate getting there being a problem.

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.

Thanks Chris

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..

 

Regards

 

John

OBSERVING EVENING CANCELLED - 30TH JANUARY

Michael Morris
 

We had some nice clear bits of sky early evening :-).  However, we now have a bank of ever-thickening cloud rolling in from the west which is not due to clear us until much later this evening, so we decided to cancel tonight's planned observing evening ;-(
Sorry folks.  We'll try again in February.

OBSERVING EVENING CANCELLED - 23rd JANUARY

Michael Morris
 

Unfortunately, tonight we have yet another evening of cloud, so tonight's planned observing evening is cancelled.
However, all is not lost.  There are 5 Thursdays in January this year, so we'll have another crack at an observing evening next Thursday (30th January). Fingers crossed.
