The April 2022 monthly meeting of Liverpool Astronomical Society for the 2019 – 2022 (138th) session will be held on Friday, April 22nd from 19:00 to 21:00.

In addition to speaking for them and other organisations, Steve is an active member of Macclesfield AS as their Field Trip Co-ordinator and former Chairman, as well as a keen urban astrophotographer. Steve’s lecture is entitled:

OUR PLACE IN THE UNIVERSE – How Lucky Do You Feel Today?

An explanation and illustration of the incredible and fortunate sequence of astronomical processes and events, many of them just pure chance and random serendipity, which have led to us being here today.
