My wife and I spent a most enjoyable day on Monday at the Greenwich Observatory, hosted by the Flamsteed Astronomy Society. During the afternoon Jane Bendall and Mike Dryland showed us around the galleries generously sharing their expert knowledge. In the evening I presented a lecture about The Sun Kings to the Society and had a fascinating time talking to the members afterwards. You can read about the evening here. Or visit their main web page here to learn of their other planned events. They meet in the National Maritime Museum down the hill from the Observatory, which is a lovely setting.
