Lecture, Wednesday 9th October, 7.30 p.m. "Measuring the brightness of stars from space: flares, outbursts, exoplanets and the inside of stars." by Dr Gavin Ramsay (AOP)

The talk will outline how astronomers can answer important questions by carefully measuring the brightness of stars and how amateur astronomers have played an important part. It will also highlight the benefits of making such observations from space and will chart the capabilities and science which have come from satellites such as MOST, Corot, Kepler and TESS and look forward to the future Plato mission.

Gavin has lectured to us before, and explains things in a clear an simple way, so everyone should be able to enjoy this talk.
