Lectures, suitable for members, beginners and the general public, are held on the second Monday of every month in Trinity College Dublin. Of course, it is not always possible for people to travel to the lectures and attend them in person. We are pleased to be able to offer these lectures to our valued members and everyone who shares our interest in astronomy and space on DVD.
