An up-coming event at UCLAN in Preston: The Jeremiah Horrocks Spring Lecture Comets, Asteroids and Impacts. Should we worry and what can we do? Tuesday 15th May 2018 – 6:30 pm
Whether you’re interested in the latest mind-boggling cosmological theories, or just want to know how to find your way around the night sky, EAS is for you. Visitors and new members are welcome regardless of age, experience, or any equipment they might (or might not) own. We have well-known and popular guest speakers. Our own members also give talks and presentations about subjects related to astronomy. Why not come along to one of our meetings, or our public observing sessions where you will be able to see and use various telescopes, etc?
