Winter 2005 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).
The Observatory will be open to the public between 8pm and 10pm (possibly later if the weather is good) on the third Friday of each month.
On other Fridays we are often there between 8pm and 10pm if the skies are clear but 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).
