Gastronomical Geminids (13the December 2014)
Members of TweedAstroS celebrated the peak of the Geminid meteor shower with an wonderful Indian buffet meal provided by our friends at the Shukria. What a spread!
The after dinner entertainment was in the form of a presentation given by none other than Dr John Davies of the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh, co-discoverer of asteroid 3200 Phaethon, the source of the Geminid meteor shower! John also brought meteorites and models for everyone to examine and a wide range of poster and images. A really excellent evening was had by all. Thanks to everyone who supported the event and to all those who helped behind the scenes!
