REFLECTIONS ON A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE
Due to the state of emergency issued by Christchurch City Council, and the data suggesting the weather is due peak at 10pm, I have been advised tonight's meeting has been cancelled
Several CAS members were fortunate enough to experience first-hand the total eclipse in North America on August 21 2017 and they have agreed to share their experiences with us. There will be photos and stories of what they saw and tales of what not to do! Join us for a night of jaw-dropping pictures and discover what happens when the moon occults the sun and day turns to night!
This is a GREEN presentation - Please use the RSVP so that we can estimate attendance numbers
CAS Member Meetings
Our member meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the University of Canterbury, West 701 in the Rutherford Building. We are currently hosted in the room West 701, Rutherford Building. If you are interested in membership, this is a good place to start and you will be warmly invited to attend - just contact one of the committee members beforehand so that we know to expect you. Our meetings start at 7:30pm with a cup of tea and a social chat, before the main topic of the night begins at 8pm prompt. Members and visitors will be asked to sign a register of attendance. The subject matter will range from general appeal to all levels to scientific or data analysis. We will try, where appropriate to identify the level of the presentation on a traffic light basis.
GREEN - appeals to all
AMBER - a mixture of general appeal and scientific data
RED - scientific or data based presentation
