Thursday 8th: Wellington Society Meeting
7:30pm, Huntleigh GirlGuiding Centre, Silverstream Road, Crofton Downs, Wellington
Birth of our World Presentation by John Creech
Using research material from his PHD thesis John will present the geological evidence for the precise date of the formation of the Earth, its composition and differentiation. Much of this work was based upon the studies of meteorites – fragments from other planetary bodies and debris left over from the formation of the planets.
Catastrophe – Birth of the Planet
Following in the theme of John’s talk, after a tea/coffee break, we have a spectacular documentary on the difficult birth of our planet.
Observing: Weather permitting telescope viewing may be held after the meeting.
