Winter Solstice Meeting.
Everyone knows the earth’s tilt causes deep rooted cultural and agricultural effects on human society, as well as dominating wild nature. For example, it has caused some species to suspend animation by hibernation. In former days there were important calendrical factors such as the correct season to plant crops, but modern life often throws up a cultural nuttiness.
We will take a look at the oddities of this situation as well as looking at how calendars and time-keeping evolved. We will finish with a quick summary our star’s workings and the images from SOHO that are so important.
Doors open at 7pm for setting up and conversation.
