Society Meeting

Venue: Meeting Room, Swinton Bottom Club (Formerly Swinton WMC)

I will basically be giving a run down of Solar activity since records began about 4,000 years ago. I will be including naked eye sunspots as well as the main observers in the telescopic era. I will also be mentioning the trends in Solar cycle etc. Hope this is helpful.

Speaker: Mick Nicholls

I began visually observing the night sky in 1976. I am interested in all objects in the sky especially solar system objects, deep space and the Sun. I began astrophotography in 1996 when I joined Mexborough And Swinton Astronomical Society, a very friendly, excellent and forward looking society with members from all ages and knowledge and interests.
