Speakers Lunch: Edinburgh’s Forgotten Astronomer,
Monday 19th October 2020, 12 noon
How many people in Edinburgh know that it was Astronomer Charles Piazzi Smyth who introduced the Time Ball and Time Gun to Edinburgh – legacies that remain to this day?
But he did not stop there! Here was a man who made mountain top astronomy a reality and was involved in pushing Spectroscopy and Meteorology to new heights.
All this whilst doing pioneering work in photography, and turning out brilliant art works.
Too many activities for one talk! This talk will take a controversial aspect of his life and work and present it from his perspective.
