On Tuesday the 7th of May I will be making my third trip to Lincoln Astronomical Society.
This time I will be telling them all about a hero of mine, Charles Piazzi Smyth.
He was the son of Admiral Henry Smyth, attended Bedford School and went on to…, well, to find out you’ll just have to attend the talk entitled:
Piazzi Smyth and his high altitude Tenerife Observatories.
Meeting starts at 7:30pm.
Cost £4:00 for non-members.
Lincoln AS meet at their observatory and lecture facility located at:
23 Westcliffe Street Lincoln.
Unfortunately, there is a steep set of 50 stairs leading to the observatory, which makes the site inaccessible for wheelchair users. Lincoln AS extend a sincere apology for people who might be affected by this.
