Hope all our members and all who have supported our events in the past have had a good summer. At least one of our members went to the USA for the total solar eclipse so we look forward to hearing about his experience.
We begin our programme this year on Tuesday 10th October 7pm at the Dumfries Museum (they have an exhibition on space then). PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE NO SEPTEMBER MEETING THIS YEAR. At our first meeting Dr Alec MacKinnon, Senior Lecturer in Astrophysics at Glasgow University will speak to us about Gamma Ray Astronomy and explain how this helps our knowledge of both the Sun and the Moon. Please invite friends/guests to come as we are looking to gain new members!
For the rest of the year we have a good programme due which includes other specialist speakers and planned observing nights. More details at our first meeting on 10th October…….
