Last night, I slotted in to give an ‘emergency talk’ to Breckland Astronomical Society, after their scheduled speaker had to pull out. I was made extremely welcome and considering that the audience thought they were going to hear about dark matter, they gave the Sun Kings their full attention.
You can visit Breckland Astronomical Society by clicking here. They have a great observatory, whose dome used to sited at the University of Hertfordshire. In fact, it’s the dome where I learnt observational astronomy when I was an undergrad at Hertfordshire!
Also, at the talk was astronomy writer Gerald North, whose new book Observing the Moon is just out. It’s been getting excellent reviews and if you are a casual observer who wants to take things a stage further, I thoroughly recommend it.
You can order the book in the UK here.
