8 Great Astronomers

On Wednesday 29th April, Bob Mizon is kindly delivering a talk entitled ‘8 Great Astronomers’. Some might be challenged to name 8 astronomers. Others may not be able to whittle down the list they know of from antiquity to present day to just give us 8. Which 8 would you pick? Fred Hoyle? Mary Somerville? Eratosthenes? Heather Cooper?

The talk starts at 7:30pm and unlike other months, this monthly talk will only be available online. You’ll need to download Zoom (https://zoom.us/Download) and check your speakers, microphone and web camera work as expected. We recommend you do this as early as possible so there are no panics on the night.

You can join the monthly from 7:15pm by clicking:


We hope to also stream to YouTube and make it available via our channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgEv5Vf3n6lCOQFz3MFOvnQ)
