The night sky and understanding the universe are at the heart of Craven u3a's astronomy group. We will meet monthly this winter, in Skipton's Sandylands Sports Centre, for our talks and discussions. We aim to share knowledge in a friendly informal way, and beginners are most welcome. Each month there will be a presentation on some aspect of astronomy and space exploration, which may include video. We will also discuss what can be seen in the sky at night, what stars and planets are visible in Skipton at the moment, and other events such as an eclipse or meteor shower.

Basic Meteorology (54121/science)

Why does it rain or snow? What makes the wind blow so hard? What on earth is the Adiabatic Lapse Rate? If these questions give you pause for thought, then a six session course on basic Meteorology may shed a little (insolated) light on the matter. The course will concentrate on those of us who go outdoors and are exposed to the elements, hence participants will be encouraged to make observations and discuss their own experiences of how the weather has played a part in their lives. There will be a steady breeze of description, showers of explanation with pictures (interspersed by occasional light anecdotes). We will avoid any turbulence caused by arithmetic.

Birdwatching (5377/outdoor)

Meetings are weekly and alternate between indoor meetings at Bolton Abbey Village Hall where we have presentations for members and visiting speakers and some DVDs and trips by car sharing or coach to nearby birdwatching spots.

Creative Writing (39109/indoor)

This is not a normal U3A group! We do not actually meet... unless by chance... or for social reasons. We communicate by email and each fortnight a new topic is set. We then have two weeks in which to send our contribution (preferably by attaching a Word file) to the rest of the group via a group email address. Contributions can be prose, poetry, drama scripts or whatever. Members may then send private feedback/comments to the writer. There is no obligation to write, or to comment, and the deadlines are flexible. In fact, we don't really like rules. We always treat each other with respect and try to keep to a 500 word limit so that we are not overwhelmed by having to much to read. Suggestions for topics are always welcome. The key is to have a go... use your imagination... and be creative!

All of this was underpinned by successful engagement with the expanding cotton textile industry. Although the course draws on historical geography, and social and economic history, no prior knowledge is necessary, and all are welcome. The course is presented mainly as generously illustrated lectures, and the intention is to demonstrate that familiar urban landscapes are rich in historical interest. Terraced housing, mills, chapels, and railways are amongst the themes which will be considered.
