About the Event
Jane Clark has a Ph.D. in physics and a mid-career MBA from Warwick University. She acquired a telescope in 2006, shortly after completing her MBA, and quickly became hooked on observing. This experience made her realize that astronomy is a lot more fun than business administration. In 2017 she achieved her ambition of having an observatory in her back yard. She is a member of Bristol, Cardiff and Newtown Astronomical Societies; and was a founder member of West Norfolk Astronomy Society. Jane gives talks to astronomy clubs, and other societies as diverse as the cub scouts, the University of the Third Age, and church wives’ groups.
She has published three books on the Solar System with Springer; and has a contract from them to write a book on how to photograph galaxies from light polluted skies, with the manuscript due for submission next May.
