Eastwell Road, Scalford, LE14 4ST
Everyone is invited to come along to the Old Brickyard Star Club for this one of their regular monthly meetings which take place on the last Friday of each month from September through to May.
This month's meeting has been brought forward a week so to accommodate the amazing Dr Julian Onions who will be the guest speaker for this event.
"Julian has always had an interest in astronomy over many years, but decided to take it further by studying for a doctorate in astrophysics at Nottingham University. There he studies computer models of galaxy formation using some of the biggest computers in the world, and builds model universes using mostly dark matter. He is also a keen amateur
taking photographs of various astronomical objects, but is brought back to earth by his department colleagues who get to use some of the biggest telescopes yet built with tracking to die for."
The location itself is a perfect escape from the bright city lights -- being away from light pollution the Milky Way can be seen arching across the skies (when there's no moon). Take your own telescope if you have one. What's more there will be tea and cake! A stargazer's heaven and a great way of getting out for an evening under the stars!
- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.
- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
This event is being organised by Old Brickyard Star Club who should be contacted if you have any queries. We highly recommend you confirm this event is indeed going ahead before travelling. If you do attend it would be fantastic if you could let the organiser know you found them via Go Stargazing!
