New Moon Stargazing, Guest Lecture & AGM

Astrosoc Logo - Earth

Hi everyone,

Just to remind you of a few things we have planned for next week.

(1) On Monday (11th) we have an observation planned! We will be looking at some of our nearest celestial neighbours during this months new moon. A “new moon” is the opposite of a full moon, meaning the moon can’t be seen and its light doesn’t cover up the stars meaning the view we get should be very impressive! Join us on the 8th floor terrace of Blackett next Monday (March 11th) from 7-11pm!

If you are unsure how to find us or Blackett, ring 074287 49808 or 075393 47037 and somebody will come to fetch you.

(2) Also on Tuesday (12th) we have arranged a Guest Lecture by Prof. Stephen Warren – Imperial’s Astrophysics Group produces world-class astronomical research and its lead scientist, Professor Stephen Warren, will hold a lecture entitled “The Most Distant Quasars and Galaxies” at 7pm in Blackett Lecture Theatre 2. You can find more information on Prof. Warren’s talk at: http://www.facebook.com/events/384056895024890/

(3) Finally from 6-7pm (just before the Guest Lecture on Tuesday) we will be holding our AGM to elect a new committee for AstroSoc in the next academic year. If you love stargazing and/or astronomy, come by and get involved! Anyone can run for any of the following positions, and all you have to do is write a short manifesto and send it to astrosoc@imperial.ac.uk:

1.  President
2.  Treasurer
3.  Secretary
4.  Webmaster
5.  Publicity Officer x2
6.  Speakers’ Liaison
7.  Equipment Officer

If we haven’t received a nomination for a position before we send the manifestos out on Monday morning, we will be open to people nominating themselves at the AGM!

Clear skies everyone!
