Armchair Astronomy: Hamilton, Canada
Organiser: Royal Astronomical Society of Canada - Hamilton Branch

Event Date(s): January 13, 2019

About: Ever wanted to sit back and just discuss a topic and see where it leads? That is what our Armchair Astronomy meetings are all about! Once a month, we gather at the observatory to start discussing a topic…where it leads from there is completely dictated by the discussion. Start with a mission to Mars and end up in a black hole! These meetings are great fun as they do not require any particular special knowledge, and are a great way to learn a little about a number of different topics! Gates open at 1:30pm, discussion formally starts at 2pm.
