PRESIDENT'S POST

Thirty-five members and guests (many from University of the Third Age) attended today’s Club meeting by Zoom.  We were treated to a fascinating and thought-provoking talk by Associate Professor Dr Duane Hamacher on his research into how indigenous people in Australia and elsewhere interpreted the stars and celestial phenomena and from their observations predicted such things as changes in the weather and seasons.  His talk, based on his soon-to-be-released book, First Astronomers, provoked many questions from a rapt audience.  
See a full report on Duane’s talk elsewhere in the Bulletin.
