Taking to the Skies talk on Thursday 11 October

Gavin Pretor-Pinney
Society founder, Gavin Pretor-Pinney, will be giving an illustrated clouds talk this Thursday evening (11 October, 2012) in Richmond Upon Thames, Greater London, UK. ‘Taking to the Skies’ will work as a tour of the sky that will educate, entertain and enthral. Gavin will show you how to distinguish the different cloud formations, from the common Cumulus to the rare and fleeting Kelvin-Helmholtz wave cloud. He will explain why clouds have always been such an inspiration to poets and playwrights and he will argue that finding shapes in the clouds is the perfect antidote to the stresses of modern life.

Venue: Duke Street Church, Richmond, TW9 1DH
Date: Thursday 11 October 2012
Time: From 7pm
Ticket Price: £10
Book tickets from The Environment Trust for Richmond upon Thames

    Mark, I always like visiting Cornwall – not least because I am based in Somerset – so hopefully I’ll be asked to do another event there before too long.
