Chris was also the guest speaker and provided a fascinating insight into the world of astronomy - targetting his presentation to the theme of 30 years of celebration in recognition of this being U3A Hawthorn's 30th year of operation. His evident pashion for his subject and the wonderful graphic material he presented certainly captured the audience's attention and generated considerable discussion.
