Next Monthly Meeting:


Tuesday 7th January (19:15 - 22:00)

"Island Universes" by Stephen Mackintosh

(Highland Astronomy)

You might have received a telescope for Christmas - Come along and hear about what you can observe in the Scottish Highlands night sky!

 

Talk Summary: A journey through space & time, looking at the massive stellar structures that make up the observable universe.
 

Local astronomer Stephen Mackintosh from Highland Astronomy will take you on a journey through space and time, looking at the massive stellar structures that make up the observable universe - galaxies. How did we discover them, how many are there and what do they tell us about the immense scale and dynamics of the universe?

Plus tips and advice on observing galaxies and other faint deep sky objects for yourself.



Tonight is ideal for those who have recently purchased, or are thinking about purchasing, a new scope or binoculars and may want to know more about it and also arrange tuition from our most able Club members as to how to set things up, find objects, and get the best out of their astronomy equipment.

If you can be there 7:15pm for a 7:30pm start that helps us greatly.

Looking forward to a great evening!
