Summer 2004 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).
|April||2nd||Open Forum about the Society|
Following on from the points raised at
the AGM about the Society's finances and our use of the
Observatory this meeting will be an opportunity for
Members to discuss the future of the
Society with the Council. Some discussion papers will
be sent out to members in advance.
This meeting is primarily for members of the society although visitors will not be turned away.
