September CAS Meeting
Remember our next meeting is on Tuesday 30th September, 7.30pm at St Joseph's Church Hall. This month I'm very pleased to say that we have our old friend and CAS founder Stuart Atkinson coming up from Kendal to give a talk on his favourite topic . . . Mars.
Staurt's talk "Visions of Mars" will examine how our view of Mars has changed over the years, from Percival Lowell's sketches to the very latest images from the MERs and Phoenix. Many of the images will be processed by Stuart himself. I'm certain it will be a fascinating talk, see you there.
