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.
