CYA 7-11

The Lives of Peculiar Stars
Saturday 27th August 2022
Start time : 10:00

Speaker : CAA

The Sun is a fairly well-behaved star and like many other stars both large and small follows well predicted patterns of behaviour. However, there are some stars that have not read the rule book and are mischievous and a few of these unruly stars even have astronomers scratching their heads wondering what is going on! This month we are looking at a few of these oddballs.
