The Northern Ireland Amateur Astronomy Society (NIAAS)
February 2020 meeting PDF Print E-mail

For our next meeting our very own night sky expert Stevie Beasant will be giving us a talk entitled 'Orion, more than a nebula'  Of course there is a lot of excitement in the Orion constellation with the star Betelgeuse dramatically dimming recently.  This is a red supergiant that will at some point go supernova.  Many thought this dimming was a prelude to an iimminent explosion, but that seems to not be the case though.  Other than that it's a fascinating constellation to observe with many delights that Stevie will tell us about.

It will be on Monday 3rd February, it starts at 8pm sharp in our usual venue of Ballyclare High School Lecture TheatreDirections can be found here.
