Village Resident Presents Monthly Astronomy on Zoom

At 3pm on Wednesday, 14th April, many will be back in their workplace but there will be many others still at home.  For those not at work, at 3pm, village resident, Peter Davies will be launching the first of his Zoom presentations: ‘ An Introduction to the basic principles of our Earth, Sun and planets‘.

Presentations will occur each month and progress through all aspects of time, space, distance and gravity. Ideal for beginners who want to know more than just the names of stars and constellations.  The first session will take a look at the basics of how our solar system works in general starting with magnetic forces. The project is being funded by Magna.org.uk and supported by Broadwindsor.org.  It will continue on a monthly basis for as long as there is interest.

Peter’s interest in astronomy began over 20 years ago after studying & working in electronics.  “I’d like people to understand what they see when they look at an object in the night sky rather than looking at a pinpoint of light. The sessions really are for beginners and I’d advise to keep notes for reference for future sessions.”  The sessions are 90 minutes each and Peter does recommend having a notepad and pen to take any notes.  There will be a ten minute break during the session for refreshments.  There will also be the opportunity to ask questions and/or discussion.
