Happy New Year everyone.
If you're looking for something to watch now that Christmas is over I
have just uploaded videos of the BAA Christmas Meeting to our website.
This fantastic meeting was attended by around 250 people and the two
main talks were:
- Lord Rees, BAA Christmas Lecture: "The next 25 years in astronomy,
some hopes and speculations"
- Prof. Mike Barlow, UCL - "Supernovae, red giant stars and the dust
content of galaxies at high and low redshifts"
I did the Sky Notes, many of which are still relevant now, including
the Quadrantids tonight, Comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) and a Near Earth
Asteroid pass towards the end of the month.
The videos are here:
and you will need to be logged into the website to see beyond the
first two minutes. I've also put my Sky Notes on our Youtube channel
so anyone can watch it:
I hope those who couldn't get to the meeting find these videos useful.
