History of Astronomy - Prof Bryn Davis

An illustrated talk about how man started to make sense of the night sky from 5-6000 years ago to the present, with examples from across the world.

Bryn is the chair of our Astronomy Society and a long standing member. He had has written a book about the history of Vectis Astronomical Society and is a very entertaining speaker.

The Vectis Astronomical Society meets on the 4th Friday of every month, except for December. This event is open for non-members to attend. The speakers come from all over the country and give a presentation for around 45 mins. We then stop for a break with tea and biscuits, which gives an opportunity to mingle and chat. The second half of the evening one of our regular members will give a short 20min ‘what’s in the sky this month’ presentation.

We have a suggested donation of £2.50 for Non Members of Vas.
