Following the wettest summer for over 100 years it seems appropriate that, in the autumn of 2012, we should launch the Flamsteed Radio Astronomy Group. We already have over twenty members and as part of the Royal Observatory Greenwich can look forward to support and resources unavailable to most observing groups.
We hope to hold meetings regularly in the historic Endeavour Room which was once the Planetarium and before that a working observatory.
Additional meetings will I hope continue at local hostelries with members of the Group passing on knowledge to the rest of the Flamsteed Members and a wider audience via our website. While learning about this fascinating branch of astronomy, we also hope to establish practical observing sessions which are not reliant on good weather or clear skies.
