Voyager 1 & 2 - The Grand Tour

WMA member (and secretary of the Mid-Somerset Radio Association) Dave Edwards gave an in depth talk in the technical aspects of the Voyager Missions, following a members supper at the Old Down Inn, Chilcompton. 

Voyager 1 has now left the solar system passing out past the heliopause (where the solar wind meets the interstellar wind). Its now the farthest and fasted man made object ever.

The event was very well attending (about 50 people) with a number of new and old members. Following the talk, members set up their telescopes in the beer garden for some observing of the moon.
