Our lecture programme has been suspended from the beginning of April onwards because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore the planned lecture by Michael Perryman on Friday 3rd April 2020 did not take place. The title was “Hipparcos and Gaia – Space Astrometry: unravelling the formation and evolution of our galaxy”. Also cancelled for now is our May lecture which was to have been “How the Sun Paints the Sky” by Dr Robert Fosbury. We are looking into either rescheduling these lectures or giving them in some online format. Our Autumn programme is still on at the moment, starting with “The HOYS-CAPS Project” given by Dr Dirk Froebrich on Fri 4th September. However this could of course be changed if the lockdown continues in some form.
