Welcome to AstroSoc!
Monday, 25 August 2014
If you are a fresher starting at Durham this year then hopefully we will see you at our first observing evening of Michaelmas term: Freshers' Obs on Sat 11th Oct, 7:30pm. Please feel free to come along, whether you’re a frequent star-gazer or you've never tried astronomy before; our Obs Officers will be on hand to show you around the night sky through a selection of the society's telescopes. Normally we meet every Saturday at 8pm outside the Physics Department, and anyone is welcome to come along throughout the year.
If you happen to be more of an armchair astronomer, look out for the society’s series of fortnightly talks, featuring guest speakers from the physics department. As well as this we are hosting the annual Thomas Wright Trophy Quiz this year, where we battle local astronomy societies with our universal knowledge. If that wasn’t enough, we are also arranging two external speakers for the year ahead.
To those of you who are returning to Durham, I hope you had a great summer and I look forward to seeing you all again.
