    February Meeting
    Tue 3-Feb-2015, 7.30-10pm
    Oaklands Museum, Moulsham Street
    "Probing the Northern Lights"
    By Dr Brendan Goodbody

    Ever worked aurora, but don't know what it really is/does? Our February talk will cover how observations and science of the aurora have developed over time. Brendan who now works at BAE Systems Great Baddow recently completed his PhD related to this, including some 'cool' on site visits. A colourfully illustrated talk will explore the processes that create and control the aurora, and how that affects us on earth.

    So whilst HAARP may be no more, the subject is very much alive elsewhere, both on earth and even observing aurora on other planets.

    CARS welcomes visitors, so by all means let your astronomer friends know as well. We will have our usual tea/coffee refreshments and our famous prize raffle!
