BAA Sky Notes

Good evening everyone.

Many of us are are living through extraordinary restrictions on our activities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As noted elsewhere the BAA has opened up its video archive to everyone for the duration of the current crisis. Since many of us are spending a lot more time at home than normal we have also decided to produce some videos to keep everyone in touch with the Association even though all of our physical meetings have been cancelled.

I have just uploaded the first two of these to our Youtube channel. They are:

The BAA Sky Notes for 2020 Spring by Richard Mckim

Venus, The Evening Star by Dr. John Mason.

I hope you enjoy these. We'll be producing others in the near future and any suggestions for topics will be welcome.

Keep an eye on the Youtube channel for more.

Great idea

A great idea Nick! And exactly at the right time. This week my school in Australia is moving to on-line teaching, and I was looking for an on-line activity for our weekly lunchtime Astronomical Society meeting today. John Mason's film of the ISS transit is perfect, particularly as we have had some excellent passes over Perth in the last few weeks. So, thank you to Nick, and to John and Richard as well for the great videos.
