Welcome to West Yorkshire Astronomical Society
a Registered Charity (Charity Number 508313).
Friday 9th December. Not one but two talks! from our President Professor Jonti Horner.
FIREBALLS AND EXOPLANETS!
Yes Jonti is coming back from Australia for a little while and will be talking about two massive research projects he's working on including spotting fireballs over the Australian dessert with a view to finding any debris that may be left and "Minerva Australis" looking for exoplanets!
If you have been to one of Jonti's talks you will know how good he is at making complex issues understandable and the phenomenal way he can link seemingly disparate subjects together. It will be thoroughly entertaining and will include a question and answer session which he excels at!
Last week we had a visit of about 30 students from Oulton Primary as part of their Science Week.
What a great bunch of intelligent pupils. Everyone enjoyed the evening and the observatory was buzzing!
Here are some pictures they have been kind enough to send us inspired from the evening.
