Owen Brazell talks this month

February’s speaker is Owen Brazell and he’ll be with us on Wednesday 26th. Start time is 7:30pm; doors open at 7:15pm. The venue is the Herschel Museum of Astronomy on New King Street, Bath.

The talk is on observing planetary nebulae; the death coughs of aged stars not big enough to go bang.

Owen Brazell has a prolific knowledge of deep sky faint fuzzies built up over 5 decades of observing and contributing to the UK astronomical community. He’s a member of the Webb Society and Abingdon Astronimcal Society and loves to observe with big Dobsonian telescopes. He’s hunted the length and breadth of the UK to find dark sites to observe from. He’s a regular speaker at societies nationwide on his favourite topic of faint fuzzies.
