The Institute of Astronomy is open to the public every Wednesday evening 7 - 9pm throughout the winter. An astronomer from the Institute will present a half-hour public talk, starting promptly at 7.15pm. This followed by an opportunity to look through the historical Northumberland and Thorrowgood telescopes if and only if the weather is clear. Members of the Cambridge Astronomical Association also set up modern telescopes on the observatory lawns, with video projection facility and expert commentary. Of course, observing can’t always be guaranteed as it is very weather-dependent. However, the talk will always take place, and on a cloudy evening will be followed by a tea break and some short entertainment from the CAA.
We have a special group booking for the PdOC Society at the Institute of Astronomy for the evening of Wednesday 25 February. The talk is titled "A 'galactic hailstorm' in the early Universe"
