May 2011 meeting report

The May meeting was our Annual General Meeting. Thanks to everyone who came along to take part and thanks particularly to those who volunteered to join the committee for the coming year.

Before the meeting Robin took the opportunity provided by some clear skies and sunshine to show us the sun through a couple of solar telescopes. Thanks Robin.

After the formal AGM business was complete I gave a talk on "Particle physics for astronomy" looking at the links between the very large ( cosmology) and the very small (particle physics).

Next month is our last meeting before the summer break.
