SWHAS Monthly Meeting September 2023

29th September 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Sky At Night – By Gordon Rogers









“The Sky at Night, with a Laugh”







“As a keen amateur astronomer this talk covers astronomical topics of contemporary interest both amateur and professional. I have a passion for Deep Space imaging and have built a state of the art observatory adjoining my house: I explain how this operates. Sir Patrick Moore filmed a whole “Sky at Night” programme at my observatory and asked me to write a book about it in his astronomy series. It is published by Springer and entitled “My Heavens”. I am a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. It is a staggering topic and there is plenty of room for humour.”

The meeting will also include a news item of interest and a tour of the night sky.

We will be meeting at the RMS as well as online via Zoom.

Zoom details will be emailed to members a few days before the meeting.
