Friday, 6 December 2019 "It's about time." Dr Chris Goodall, retired Senior Lecturer in Astrophysics and Space Research, will tell us about the three of nature’s clocks which define our calendar, namely the Earth’s rotation, the Moon’s orbit and the Earth’s orbit round the sun. Unfortunately, these are not synchronised. Man's attempt to regularise the calendar over the centuries has led to some interesting anomalies, perhaps the most significant of which is Easter. This talk explores how these anomalies have arisen.
