Course handouts and examples sheets are put on to Moodle. You may find some are in the pigeonholes below the Part II noticeboard outside Hoyle Room 6. Please help yourself to whatever you do not get during the lectures.

Lunchtime Seminars

There is a regular bread-and-cheese lunch, followed by a Seminar, on most Wednesdays in term time.

We encourage you to come to these lunches, and the Seminars on a range of astronomical topics, which are held in the Hoyle Lecture Theatre. There are vending machines in the Hoyle building where snacks and drinks can be purchased at any time.
