Our first speaker of the new season is an established friend of SARAS who always treats us to an interesting and popular talk.
In his illustrated talk “Pluto Revealed” author and amateur astronomer Stuart Atkinson will tell the story of the amazing NEW HORIZONS mission, which recently carried out the first ever fly-by and exploration of Pluto and its moons.
Using stunning images taken by the probe – many of which Stuart has processed himself, to bring out details and features not visible in the raw images released by NASA – the talk will describe New Horizons’ epic journey from Earth to Pluto, and describe the science it carried out on the way.
The September meeting takes place on Friday 16th September 2016 from 7.45pm.
Non-members welcome (£3 entry) and refreshments available following the talk.
