Autumn Skies

Guest Speaker

Thursday, 4th August 2022 (19:45 - 22:00)

Venue: Virtual Meeting

The end of summer brings with it a burst of colour. Red, orange, and yellow leaves turn the fall landscape into a spectacular show. There’s also less light pollution during this time of year, making it perfect for stargazing. This is perfect timing to catch all the sights of the autumn skies.

A night sky tour in October offers so many bright and beautiful things to see. It's no wonder that September has been declared as International Dark Sky Month by the non-profit organization Dark Sky Association.

Speaker: Kris Hudson-Lee

As for my biography:

Kris has been a member of the society on and off since he was just 10 years old, first joining in 1983. In his time as a member he has given many talks about many subjects however his main interest has always been the outer solar system.
