6th October - Wiltshire Astronomical Society

Our October speaker will be familiar to many of our members here, especially those involved in sketching.

Sally Russell FRAS (aka The Chemist) is one of the foremost astronomial sketchers around. Her skills in capturing the intricate details of the Sun, resulted in her being invited to the Solarfest conference in Dublin earlier this year, and as well as our nearest star, Sally also sketches many deep sky and solar system objects. It's an amazing skill to do right, and she'll be explaining the ins and outs of how to go about this "credit crunch beating" aspect of astronomy, and showing many examples of her work.

Tea, Q&A and Biccies to follow

Starting at 8pm on 6th Oct
