Dundee Astronomical Society Meeting: Dwarf Planets

Dundee Astronomical Society and invited speakers present an informative programme of public talks.

In 2006 the International Astronomical Union decided to reclassify Pluto as a dwarf planet and defined what this new category of astronomical body is. Since then a few objects in the solar system have been reclassified and this talk describes what they are and how they are important to understanding our solar system. It also discusses future space exploration of these bodies (1pm to 3pm).

Solar Viewing (3pm to 4pm weather permitting): Members of Dundee Astronomical Society will be on hand to help visitors to safely view the Sun by telescope and raise awareness of its importance as the planet's primary energy source.
Free, but not suitable for small children.
