Next Starnight Observing Session:  Wednesday 12th August -  Perseid Meteor Observing Session at Chelveston Village Hall, Caldecott Road, Chelveston from 9.30pm.

Next Sudborough Meeting:   Thursday 3rd September at Sudborough Village Hall, Main Street, Sudborough at 8.00pm.  ‘Medieval Astronomy’.  Seb Falk will introduce the methods and instruments of medieval astronomy.  Astronomers in medieval universities and monasteries refined ancient theories, developed new ways of calculating and presenting information, and above all invented complex, ingenious instruments like astrolabes and equatoria.  Seb will explain some of these and show that perhaps the Dark Ages were not as dark as is often thought.
