Monthly Meeting: Friday, 26th April, 2019

Friday, 26th April 2019 @ 19:00 - 21:00 BST

The April 2019 monthly meeting of Liverpool Astronomical Society for the 2018 – 2019 (137th) session will be held on Friday, April 26th from 19:00 to 21:00.

Please note that this is the 4th Friday of the month, not the 3rd Friday.

This lecture is expected to be attended by more people than usual due to how well known the guest speaker is. For this reason, the event will be ticketed (details of how to book will be posted closer to the time), however LAS members will not have to pay any additional fee and will also be given first priority.

Our guest speaker this month is Professor Chris Lintott of the University of Oxford, and of course from BBC television’s “The Sky at Night“, whose lecture is entitled:

"How to Find a Planet from Your Sofa (and Then Check it for Aliens)"

Prof. Lintott will talk about the search for exoplanets, including ways that those outside of academia can take part.

Subscriptions for the current session 2018-2019 are now very overdue and should have been paid by October 1st.
If your subscription was not paid by the end of January, your membership rights (including voting) have lapsed.
If your subscription was not paid by the end of March, your membership may have ended
Please contact the Treasurer if you wish to become a member or update your subscription.

Adult Annual Subscription is £15.00
Junior Members Subscription (10 to 17yrs) is £5.00

The LAS e-newsletter is now included in your normal subscription cost

Free tea/coffee with light refreshments break will form part of the evening at about 8pm.

Please note – Doors will only open after 6.30pm and not before.

I do hope you can join me and your fellow members, but if you are unable to attend, please indicate your apologies to me by filling out this form.

With best wishes – Mark
