The first meeting of the 2017 is on Monday 9th January, it starts at 8pm sharp in our usual venue of Ballyclare High School Lecture Theatre. Directions can be found here.
Our speaker for January is Dr. Eamon Scullion from the University of Northumbria Newcastle and his talk is titled 'Solar Vortex'.
We are delighted to have Eamon with us for the first time to give us this talk and I'm sure you will all make him very welcome. As you can see below, Eamon's speciality is the sun so we are really looking forward to hearing his lecture.
About Eamon: Originally from North Antrim, Eamon qualified from Queens University in 2005 and followed this up with a Masters by research on Solar Physics at the University of Glasgow.
Between 2007 and 2010, he completed a Ph.D. in Solar Physics with thesis titled, "Investigating Jets in the lower-to-mid Solar Atmosphere: Observations and Numerical Simulations".
Eamon specialises in observational solar physics, which involves image processing and data analysis on high resolution observations of the lower atmosphere of the Sun.
Please feel free to join us for our first meeting of the year. If you recieved the gift of a telescope for christmas, you are welcome to come along and get some advice from our experts after the lecture.
Please note: Under 16's are very welcome but due to our child protection policy, we ask that they are accompanied by an adult.
As always the talk is free, a donation bucket is available at the door if you wish to support us in our work! Refreshments are available (also free) after the meeting and so is some good chat!
Hope to see you all there!
