Collapsars Astronomy Education

Collapsars are literally Collapsed Stars which have gravitationally contracted at the end of their long lives into incredibly dense objects. In this session, we explore White Dwarfs, Neutron Stars and Black Holes.
Astronomical Sketching General Meeting
Wednesday, 3 May 2017 8:00 PM
Astronomical sketching at the telescope has long been relegated to a quaint pre-photgraphic past. Why would anyone bother to sketch what is seen with a telescope these days? A small but growing cadre of observers are however returning to this old art and are reclaiming a lost satisfaction in carefully peering through the eyepiece and with pencils, smudge stubs and brushes translating what they see on to cartridge paper. Martin Lewicki will show how.
The Electromagnetic Spectrum Astronomy Education
Wednesday, 7 June 2017 7:00 PM
The Universe is full of electromagnetic radiation from radio waves and light to X-Rays and Gamma Rays. In this session, we will learn what electromagnetic radiation is and where it all comes from. We will also explore Spectroscopy and its application.
