Society Meeting

Thursday, 30th January 2020 (19:45 - 22:00)

Venue: Meeting Room, Swinton Bottom Club (Formerly Swinton WMC)

Why does the sky change?

From day to day our heavens change. Sometimes predictably, sometimes not quite so.

A look into why this is and demonstrating how nothing in our universe is ever stationary, and how we can predict and measure this.


This is a low level talk aimed at amateurs with little or no prior knowledge.

Speaker: Kris Hudson-Lee

As for my biography:

Kris has been a member of the society on and off since he was just 10 years old, first joining in 1983. In his time as a member he has given many talks about many subjects however his main interest has always been the outer solar system.

He holds degree level qualifications in astrophysics with mechanics.

When he's not stuck with his eye at the eyepiece he is also a semi professional bass guitarist, playing in three bands and touring all over the country; although in previous bands he has played all over Europe and even the USA.
