CAS Meeting - Tues 26th March 2013

At our next meeting we will have the pleasure of listening to Robin Leadbeater, one of our local society members.  Robin's talk is entitled:

T Tauri - A Star Is Born

A star doubling in brightness in just 6 minutes certainly grabs your attention.  Seen earlier this year during some routine measurements Robin was making to assist a PhD student, it prompted him to learn more about these stars, which behave like our Sun would have done 4.5 billion years ago.  Hear what Robin found out at this month’s meeting, which starts at 7.30pm.
