Winter 2007 Programme of Meetings
Our meetings are open to the public (unless otherwise stated). We are always happy to see new faces.
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 the following Monday evening we hold Observing Group meetings starting at 8pm. If the weather is poor then we may leave after an hour but given good weather hope to be there until 10pm at least.
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).
