Astronomy

We meet monthly on a Monday at 2.15 pm

Meetings so far have covered a range of topics, including Earth satellites and space probes, the orbits of planets, comets, meteors, types of telescopes, elements in stars and measuring astronomical distances. We have attended some of the public lectures at the Royal Observatory at Blackford Hill, Edinburgh. We are in close contact with the Peebles Astronomy Group. One of our group has a telescope that can be used to view the moon, stars and planets.
