This month’s topic…..

Fundamental Knowledge for the Observer

If it’s in the ‘O’ level syllabus it will be in this talk. Not strictly true but over the next few summer meetings we will get stuck into the topics which are the foundations of astronomy.

A good start will be ‘RA and dec’ or whatever that is and how it became so.
