Winter 2002 Programme of Meetings

Ordinary meetings take place at 8pm (Civil Time) in the City Dome of the City Observatory, Calton Hill (usually on the first Friday of the month). On other Fridays we are often there between 8pm and 10pm if the skies are clear. Please check by phone before coming up the hill.

Any changes to our meeting arrangements will be put on our website http://www.astronomyedinburgh.org/ and on the answering machine at the observatory (556 4365).
