Lecture Programme & Events Calendar

The Advanced Astronomy programme of lectures & Society events at Crayford Manor House Astronomical Society Dartford and in the wider UK Amateur Astronomical Community for 2017 - 2018.


CMHASD is very different from most other Astronomical Societies, as we run our own professional advanced astronomy lecture programme and meet every Thursday excluding Christmas week.

The lectures are held on Thursday evenings.

Each week a different lecturer from a University or British Astronomical Association (BAA), Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Royal Astronomical Society, Institute of Astronomy or professional scientist, give a talk on their particular speciality. Thus, not only are the lectures authoritative, but also include the latest information & sometimes prior to its publication.

The membership column in the table below indicates the type of member who can come along as part of their membership. If your membership does not include a meeting you can still come along but will be asked to pay an entrance fee detailed in the membership pages.

NOTE:
In the early part of the new Educational year it is quite common for our Lecturers not to be sure of the dates they will be available or what subjects they will lecture on - hence there being weeks that have no information and the titles of lectures having 'TBA' written above a lecturer's name in the programme timetable. The lectures are highlighted in blue writing.

What you can be sure of is the highest calibre Astronomy lectures.
