The Astronomy of Climate Change Talk: Mid-Kent Astronomical Society
February 18, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Could planetary alignments be affecting our climate here on Earth?
Presenter Ian Hargreaves delves into the history and reveals some interesting possibilities that even NASA and the Met Office know nothing about. This fascinating presentation looks at the facts with some stunning video footage and historical records.
About the presenter. Ian was first introduced to astronomy on Christmas Eve 1965 when, as a young lad, he witnessed a massive shooting star careering across the sky that eventually fell in Barwell, near Coventry. When his parents couldn’t explain it, he just had to find out!
Ian is Chairman of Mid-Kent Astronomical Association (MKAS) and regularly gives entertaining talks. He has his own small observatory and a 11″ GOTO telescope that he uses for visual observing and astro-photography from his garden in Medway. You can follow Ian on his Facebook page @IantheAstronomer to keep up-to-date with upcoming astronomical events.
