North Lincs astro meeting 8th May 2017

20 members were in attendance for the North Lincs astro meeting at Far Ings nature reserve visitor centre for the May 2017 meeting.

We had 3 separate speakers, starting with the welcome return of Damian giving us his constellation of the month talk. This was on Aries and included the mythology behind the constellation and interesting targets to look at .

Later John gave us the updates on the latest astronomy news from the last month, followed by Paul Cotton giving an excellent talk about Charles Messier. This included the history of his life and a run down of a few of his Messier objects and how to find them.

As per most meetings Northern Optics was in attendance with some bargains on the night. As always thank you for the Lincolnshire wild life trust for use of the venue and Malcolm and Glennys for the excellent teas and refreshments , that included a doggy bag of plum bread for me to take home
