Time is a tricky concept. Even determining what it is can be a challenge. Especially during the expansion of our rail network in the 19th century it became ever more important to ensure only one time in the UK is used.
Dr D Brown (NTU) will be introducing a more than 180 year old fully functional meridian sundial located in Bromley House Library, Nottingham. This is one of only three remaining of its kind in the UK. He will introduce an IoP project to showcase its history and functionality. This presentation will be followed by a brief introduction to what is visible in this month's sky.
