  1. A talk on stars in general. It aims to cover the following topics:
    • How stars are created.
    • How a star produces energy.
    • The Different types of stars and how we categorise them.
    • How stars evolve.
    • What the end states of stars are.

We are then hoping to follow this up with a daytime observing session of the Sun with our dedicated solar telescopes. (DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS. It is extremely dangerous and WILL result in blindness unless the right equipment is used).
