SAS on Tour at Rushbury

Feedback from the monthly meeting, which took place in the south of the county, was very positive. Over two dozen members and guests made the trip south to be treated to an excellent and informative presentation by Ian Morison who explored what we have learnt about the size and structure of our Milky Way Galaxy and its place in time and space.⁣ ⁣ Until the 1920's it was widely thought that our Milky Way Galaxy was the Universe - hence the talk’s title.
