The Great Eclipse Round-Up
This coming August sees a major astronomical event – a total eclipse of the Sun whose track crosses centrally across the USA. A number of WOLAS members will be travelling to view this eclipse, on 21 August, and at the September meeting will be recounting their tales and, hopefully, showing their spectacular photos. There will also be the chance for many of them to visit observatories, so there will be some interesting tales to tell of what could be the trip of a lifetime. 
 In addition, as this is the 50th anniversary year of the society, Robin Scagell will take a brief look at some of the highlights of those 50 years. The society was actually founded by a schoolgirl, Margaret Banks, who contacted astronomers in the area. So we’ll see a few photos of those early days, when the society – and most of its members – was young!
 The meeting will be on Monday, 11 September, at the St John Ambulance Hall, North Harrow, at 8 pm.
