We have arranged a visit to the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) Library on Thursday 27th September, starting at 2pm. The visit will last between 1 to 2 hours.

The Royal Astronomical Society has a world-class collection in astronomy and geophysics that is far more comprehensive than the libraries of most universities and research institutions.

During our visit, Dr Sian Prosser, will give us an introductory talk and will set out some rare treasures including a few Maunder materials in the collection. She will be able to discuss and answer our questions.

The visit is free but places are limited. We will start a waiting list when all places are full.

We will meet at the RAS premises in Burlington House on Piccadilly. There is no parking and the best way to get there is by tube to Piccadilly Circus or Green Park. For more information please see:

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO MEMBERS OF THE FLAMSTEED ASTRONOMY SOCIETY ONLY.

Please do not book a place on this event if you are not a member of the society. Your booking will be cancelled if your name does not appear on our membership database.
