The Society has setup a YouTube channel to allow members and the public watch again those recent lectures that we have recorded from Zoom. This collection will grow over time and it is hoped that once we can resume lectures in person at University of Strathclyde we will still be able to record and share lectures on YouTube.
The ASG will run its absolute beginner’s course online instead of at Acre Road Observatory. This informal course will run on the second Thursday of each month starting on 8th October 2020. Due to Covid-19 restrictions this course will be on line Zoom meeting.
Due to personal circumstances the class scheduled for Thursday 14th January 2021 has been postponed. The meeting will be rescheduled for the end of January or beginning of February - we will post a new zoom link then.
The course syllabus runs as follows: -
1. The Night Sky and finding your way around it.
2. Telescopes and Binoculars
3. The Solar System, Planets, Comets and Meteors
4. The Sun
5. Faint Fuzzies - Clusters, Nebulae and Galaxies
6. Any Questions?
