This Friday Dr Russell Cockman will be giving a talk entitled “Sky Art – Vistas of the Night Sky”.
Synopsis: Dr Russell Cockman has been an avid astronomical observer and photographer for many years. In this talk he will present a selection of images taken with film and, more recently, CCD cameras to highlight the beauty and colours of the heavens. Subjects will include aurorae, solar system objects and conjunctions, and deep sky objects including nebulae, Milky Way star fields and galaxies.
As the carpark is likely to be VERY muddy with all the rain lately, we will probably have to park along the East wall of the dam. If so, there will be bollards blocking the driveway. Please drive in and out of the parking spots very gently to avoid damaging this section.
Following the talk we will have supper, then viewing through our telescopes (weather permitting).
Please consider the neighbours and drive in quietly using low beam only, or better still, parking lights.
