Winter 2008 Programme of Meetings

Our meetings are open to the public (unless otherwise stated). We are always happy to see new faces.

Ordinary meetings took place at 8pm (Civil Time) in the City Dome of the City Observatory, Calton Hill (usually on the first Friday of the month) until January 2008. Venues for future meetings will be advertised when they have been confirmed.
