The next Long Eaton Astronomical Society meeting will be Thursday 23rd October starting at 6:30pm. We will be joined by Julian Onions from Nottingham University. Julian will be talking about astrophysics, through a combination of experiment, observation, theory – this is what astronomers have unravelled. The talk will take us through the basics of how stars are born, live and die, and where we all ultimately come from. Julian will lead us through what we know about how stars work: what makes them form, what do they do all day, and how do they die?
Afterwards subject to clear skies there will be an opportunity for some observing or if not there will be a short talk on topical events.
Refreshments will be from 6:15pm, as always – all are welcome. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. For non members we request a donation of £2 towards refreshments
