Introduction to Radio Astronomy, Wednesday 1st August, 2018
Wednesday, 1st August 2018 @ 19:00 - 21:00 BSTFree
As part of the informal activities initiative, Mr. Andy Sierslowski from The Astronomy Centre in Yorkshire will be visiting us to show members how they can do radio astronomy from their own homes.
Andy has a love of both visual and radio astronomy, and is a true ‘professional’ amateur, making his own aerials which can detect objects such as the sun and Jupiter, as well as meteorites (via reflected radio signals). It’s a fascinating branch of astronomy, and of course it doesn’t have that requirement of a cloudless sky to be able to enjoy it.
There is no need to book ahead for this, and it will take place in the relaxed atmosphere of Pex Hill. The primary audience for this event is LAS members.
