The Council is very sad to announce that the Honorary President of the Society, Prof. John Brown OBE, Astronomer Royal for Scotland died suddenly on Saturday 16th November. He was a great friend and support to the Society and a personal friend to many of us and will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts are with his wife and family.
