Next General Assembly - Thursday 3rd September 2020 - Centre Polivalent, Murla - More Information

Dear Members,
Due to uncertain times regarding the Coronavirus, the decision has been made to postpone all TCET events and trips until the situation is resolved .

Membership Renewals

Assuming the September General Assembly can go ahead, we plan to hold a renewals session from 10.00am until 11.00am. We also plan to hold a Satellite Renewals Session in September to replace the one that we were unable to hold in March. Watch out for a date and venue.

In the meantime, and for those who do not feel that they want to socialise at this time, members can renew by bank transfer. The U3A Bank Account is held at Caixa Bank under account number ES26 2100 6033 2102 0003 8126. Would members using this facility please remember to put their name(s) in the reference section, so we can identify payments coming through.

The next General Assembly will be in September

Astronomy

Astronomy

Being a new group, we have yet to establish our knowledge and skills, and so we are finding our way to initially observe the skies about twice a month, and learn as we go along.

We will be identifying the constellations, stars, comets, planets and moons of the planets and hoping to see meteor showers, the international space station and other nightly objects e.g.iridium flares and noctilucent clouds.

Observing evenings and times vary due to weather, the orbit of the planet earth and our moon and also the march of the seasons.

In time we hope to have, occasionally, a guest speaker and a day trip or two to places of interest so that we can expand our minds in areas of cosmology, the latest physics and astrophysics, planetary science and history. And much, much more. The sky is not the limit!

No equipment is needed, though binoculars may be useful. A telescope would be most welcome.

All U3A members are welcome. You can be included on our WhatsApp link for updates.
