Monthly Meeting: Mr. Pete Williamson – “From Myth to Moon”

Friday, 18th September 2020 @ 19:00 - 21:00 BST

The September 2020 monthly meeting of Liverpool Astronomical Society for the 2019 – 2020 (138th) session will be held on Friday, September 18th from 19:00 to 21:00.

Normally this meeting would have been the Presidential Address however as we’re still getting used to doing things online, and since we haven’t yet been able to have the AGM, we’ve opted to do this meeting more like a ‘normal’ one, albeit online.

Our guest speaker this month is Mr. Pete Williamson FRAS, Astronomer & Broadcaster with the Faulkes Telescope Project Astro Radio & the BBC, whose lecture is entitled:

“From Myth to Moon”

Pete’s talk covers the history of our closest celestial neighbour from ancient times to the Moon landings.

Please note that this lecture will only be available live – it will not be available as a recording afterwards.

The structure of the meeting is expected to be as follows:

18:45 – Room opens
19:00 – Society business
19:15 – Lecture starts
After the lecture will be a Q&A with Pete.



Please note, due to COVID-19 this meeting is ONLINE-ONLY.
Society members have been sent Zoom & YouTube links.A recording is NOT available for this lecture.


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

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
