Pixies Hill Goes Carbon Neutral

We have partnered with Ecologi to plant trees around the world this week to offset our carbon footprint over the last year. We are planning to be completely and independently carbon neutral by 2030 or earlier.

Want to find out more or interested in offsetting your own household footprint? Visit https://ecologi.com for details. In the meantime, our letterheads will now feature a new ecologi logo to demonstrate our sustainability commitment.

Well done Astronomy Club

In our last Astronomy Club session for the year,

In our last session, we used a program called Pixinsight to process an image of the M95 Galaxy we had taken using the Liverpool John Moore telescope.

M95 is a spiral galaxy around 33 million light years away (so if you travelled at 186,000km per second, it would take 33 million years to get there) and has a magnitude of 9.6 meaning you can’t see it with the naked eye, you need a telescope to see it. There is thought to be 40 billion stars in this galaxy alone!
