Herschel / Astronomy

The Herschel Group is a collaboration between the William Herschel Society (WHS) and the BRLSI. It generally holds talks on the first Friday of the month (with exceptions) over subjects related to astronomy, space travel, and William, Caroline and John Herschel.

 

Suggestions of topics and speakers are welcome and should be sent to [email protected]

 

Events are publicised by BRLSI in their newsletter and by email to WHS members who elect to receive them.  Membership of the WHS is recommended and only costs £10 a year: go to http://www.williamherschel.org.uk/membership/.  Alternatively you could email [email protected] to be included in the non-members email list.
