Astronomy talks

From time to time, I give talks to astronomical societies and other groups on various topics associated with astronomy. Audiences range from experiened astronomers to those with no previous experience, such as Womens Institute groups and university public talks.

The topics I speak about range from the basics of observing the night sky to the complexities of archaeoastronomy, by way of the constellations of the heavens, the Messier catalogue of deep-sky objects and the role of John Dobson in bringing astronomy to the masses.

I don’t charge for my talks, though I’d welcome a contribution towards my travel expenses. And perhaps a cup of tea. I tend to focus on the Bristol and Somerset area, but I’m happy to travel further afield, too. I can also give talks remotely by webinar or video-conference.

So if you’re interested in an astronomy talk for your group, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. It would be great to hear from you. And I’m sure we can sort something out.
