The Cambridge Natural History Society programme of talks starts on Thursday 27th January, at 7:30 p.m.
Jonathan Shanklin, astronomer, meteorologist, naturalist and past president of Cambridge Natural History Society, will offer a choice of talks. The audience will choose at the start of the meeting. The options are
“The Natural History of Comets” (pretty much what it says in the title, but with brief excursions into the ozone hole and climate change)
“Marvel at the Moon” (a tour of some of the things seen in the night sky with simple equipment, bringing in some links with natural history, with a brief excursion again) OR
“An astronomer in Antarctica” (mostly ozone hole and climate change, with a bit of natural history and atmospheric phenomena).
The talk will be presented online via Zoom, and CNHS members and those on the mailing list have been sent the Zoom link, which is specific to this meeting.
You will join the meeting in a waiting room and will be let in at 7:30 p.m. Your video and audio will be off when you join. You will be able to use chat to ask questions at the end of the talk, or you can raise a virtual hand from “reactions”.
The event will be recorded and Society members who cannot join the event on Thursday will then be sent a link to allow them to hear it at their leisure. If you are not a member this is a good reason to join. Details of how to join the Society are at https://www.cnhs.org.uk/membership/
