The season is due to start with a series of short talks by James Fradgley FRAS, at the Herschel Museum of Astronomy on Wednesday 25th September from 7:20pm (talks start at 7:30pm). Everyone is welcome to come along and find out more about what we’re up to and to say hello after a long summer bathed in astronomical twilight.
James is a keen amateur astronomer based near Wimborne, Dorset and very active in the Wessex Astronomical Society. Since his original degree in Physics and Astronomy at the University of York, talking about stargazing and astronomy has been in his blood. He regularly supports astronomical societies all over the UK as well as Federation of Astronomical Society and British Astronomical Association weekend meetings. James has given talks on so many astro topics it was fun deciding what would best kick off the season. We decided on 4 short talks ‘Night vision for astronomers’, ‘Lunar Cycles’, ‘Laplace Resonances’, and ‘Olber’s Paradox’. There is a small fee to come along; £2 for WHS/BA members and £5 for visitors – young people go free (to 16 years). You don’t need to let us know you intend to come along but it always helps in planning if you do. You can let us know at https://bathastronomers.org.uk/event-information/?eventId=403304217158422
