I’ve started doing Skype talks for astronomical societies.
At the moment I only have one talk prepared, about the observatory at the Roque de Los Muchachos, which I did for a Loughton Astronomical Society in West Essex. We had a test run to iron out any technical issues a week before, and it went really smoothly on the night.
Ken, their secretary says:
“Sheila Crosby from La Palma Observatory kindly agreed to address our society live from the observatory via Skype. This was the first time that Sheila and our society have attempted to do this. Our members were quite intrigued by this innovation and Sheila’s lecture was enjoyed by all. The evening was a great success with a personalised tour of the observatory and its telescopes given by Sheila which was very well received by the audience with several questions at the end of the lecture.”
I’d be happy to do the same talk for other societies, and I’d be willing to consider preparing other talks. You can contact me at crosby[dot]sheila[at]gmail[dot]com
