Eddington Astronomical Society of Kendal

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just wanted to let members of the Group know that there is a thriving and very busy AS here in Kendal - the Eddington Astronomical Society. Formed in 2004  for the Venus Transit, and named in honour of Kendal-born astronomer Sir Arthur Eddington, we now have around 60 members and meet on the first Monday of every month in Kendal Museum. We have a very busy programme of events - guest speakers, society and public observing evenings (often at the popular Brewery Arts Centre in town), lectures etc, and everyone in the Group would be very welcome to join us, either as a member, if you're looking for a Society to join, or just as a visitor! We have quite a few very keen astro-imagers, but lots of absolute beginners too.

Our next meeting, on Nov 2nd, will feature a very special guest speaker on a very welcome return visit. Nick Howes will be talking to us about comets (I think, we haven't finalised the topic yet) and wll also be bringing along some meteorites for sale. He will also be bringing some very special memorabilia - flown pieces of Apollo hardware.

As I said, everyone in the Group is very welcome to come along. :laugh:

As for myself, glad I've FINALLY got around to joining SGL, having meant to for ages. Looking forward to being a part of the Group. :laugh:
