We are obviously situated well away from any black holes, as time has flown this year and already we are approaching the Leeds Astromeet, which is on Saturday 7th Nov. The venue as usual is the Clothworkers Hall and Foyer, Leeds University. Doors open at 9.00am with talks from 10.00am to approx 16.30h. Traders and some astro-organisations will be present.

Ticket cost: £10 at the door, reduced to £5 for under-16s and full time students on presentation of a valid student card.

As of late September confirmed speakers are

Astronomy at High-Speed: delving the depths of white dwarfs, neutron stars and black-holes

Prof Tom Marsh (Warwick University)

What's the (Dark) Matter?

Dr Richard Massey (Durham University)

Developments in Radio Astronomy

Dr Melvin Hoare (Leeds University)

The Life of Sir Patrick Moore

Dr Alan Chapman (Oxford University)

Probably two cars will be traveling over to Leeds, meeting at the top of College drive and departing at 08:00h on the 7th November. Please be prompt and reserve a place now.
