CAS May 2016 meeting

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 31st May in St Joseph's church hall Cockermouth.
We have an excellent local speaker Robin Leadbeater talking on the subject:
"Where have all the supernovae gone ?"
Despite an increasing number of surveys looking for them, the number of reported supernova has dropped dramatically over the last ten years. Robin investigates what is going on and describes his own contribution to pinning down these fascinating objects.
The meeting starts at 7.30pm with a round up of astronomy and space flight news, a short coffee break - a chance to meet fellow astronomers, get advice on equipment or technical issues, and then the main talk.
All are welcome, members and visitors.
