our speaker for Saturday night is the world famous Robin Leadbeater, from none other than Torpenhow. Robin's talk is entitled "A Week In The Life of an Amateur Astronomer".
Hopefully something that will whet the appetite of budding new astronomers and show how far we amateurs can take our hobby, to a semi-professional level!
Robin's talk will include tales of colliding stellar winds, an Antarctic ballooning disaster, unearthing treasures at the seaside, shining a light on a dark and mysterious object and much more... so get yourself and your friends along to hear it from our resident expert.
Saturday 2nd October 2010 at 7.30pm, St Joseph's Church Hall Cockermouth.
