Summer Holidays!


It is holiday time so no meeting this month.
The Solar System does not stop turning though and there will be a Solar Eclipse on Friday 1st August (Total in parts of Siberia and China but only partial here). If the weather is kind I will be down on the Memorial Gardens with a small filtered telescope from about 9:30 - 11 :00 am.
By the way, if you are wondering about the surreal image it is a stereographic projection of the observatory on Pic Du Midi where a group of French amateurs are spending their summer holidays making some spectrographic observations. Click here for some more stunning photos from the expedition.


Have a good holiday!
