Again this month we had over 100 people and a great talk by Professor Alex Murphy from the University of Edinburgh on “Dark Matter: what is it, and how are we going to find it?”

Because of the interest in our talks we now have to allocate tickets on Eventbrite. These are free and we still want to emphasise that visitors are very welcome. Ticketing just allows us to plan for numbers.

Also at the meeting:

  • Alan gave a presentation on the sky for March, plus some images by members submitted to our Flickr group
  • Andrew updated us on various “astronomy and space” items that had caught his attention
  • Hugh “Iridium” Somerville gave a brief presentation on the Iridium Satellites
  • There were various Society news updates too including details of our developing education program and a proposal to create a group to work with the Cooke telescope on Calton Hill

Thank you again to all our visitors for coming – you were most welcome.
