Talk: "Meteors" - BNSS

Event date: 9th March 2021 at: 7.30pm via Zoom

Speaker: Steve Bosley

Shooting stars represent the death throes of remnants from the ancient solar system, and so studying them offers a chance to add to our knowledge of our deep past. In this talk I plan to explain what meteors are and discuss ways amateurs can affordably observe them to provide scientifically valuable data, some of which we can analyse ourselves with freely available software.
