Dr Davies Talk 12th December

Excellent talk last night from Dr Davies

And some of it so up-to-date (about 2014 MU69 double-object status)

(I'm assuming from past experience that the big iron public seats etc can be choc-a-bloc on a nice Sunday weather-wis...

Recent Indonesian Total Eclipse 360 degree view
