Celebrating 16 years of the Flamsteed Astronomy Society
At our Christmas lecture, on Monday 14 December 2015, the Flamsteed celebrated its “sweet-16th” birthday. We had over a hundred Flamsteed members in attendance, who were also treated to a superb lecture by Professor Alan Fitzsimmons.
To mark the occasion, Christina arranged for lots of little sweet bags for our members to take away, as well as a huge chocolate cake and an aptly space-themed cake:

Andy very kindly put together a video of images from the past 16 years.
Here’s to the next 16 years. As Andy mentions in the video, thanks to everyone who has made the Flamsteed such a great success (and such great fun!).
