Next meeting 8:00pm on Friday 27 May 2016: 'Total Solar Eclipse Travelogue' a talk by Mrs Diana Parsons-Yewen

All our meetings are open to the public and visitors are always welcome.

This is a programme change from the published talk. Diana is an eclipse chaser and found herself on the track of the last total solar eclipse on 9 March 2016. The eclipse path cut through Indonesia, Borneo and the islands of the Phillipines. This will be her commentary on all the activities around the eclipse: the travelling, the chasing community, the event, the weather conditions and the countries visited.
