Astronomy

Facilitator:Steve Fletcher01942 538545
Venue & time:Leigh Miners10.30am - 12.30pm1st & 3rd Friday

Ever since the dawn of time mankind has been fascinated with the night sky.

Who has not felt a sense of awe while looking deep into the sky, lit with countless stars on a clear night? Who has not asked themselves if ours is the only planet that supports life? Who has not pondered the nature of the planets, stars, galaxies, and the Universe itself? Astronomy is a science that seeks to explain everything that we observe in the Universe, from the comets and planets in our own solar system to distant galaxies to the echoes of the Big Bang. By studying the cosmos beyond our own planet, we can understand where we came from, where we are going.

So join us on that journey through the cosmos. It is hoped that the sessions will be taken by its members in turn, each on a certain topic.

The last session for 2019 will be on 6 December and the first for 2020 will be on Friday 17th January.
