General Meeting


The Lincoln Hills Astronomy Group general
meetings provide residents, from
beginners to experts,
with a forum to increase their knowledge in astronomy,
and to meet
people with like interests.  General meetings

begin with an informal "What's New in Astronomy",
followed by
the main presentation, and finish with an
informal Q & A session.
Meetings are supplemented
with our annual
planetarium trip.  For more
information contact John Combes at
Our Next Meeting
