The President opened the seventh Meeting of the 115th Session and, after a brief safety announcement, invited Dr Nick Hewitt to read the minutes of the previous meeting. These met the approval of members and were duly signed. In the absence of a list, an unspecified number of new members were proposed for election; those 29 who had been proposed at the April meeting were approved by the audience and declared elected. Mr Nick James, Papers Secretary, announced that two papers had been approved by Council for publication in the Journal:

Mr Boles informed members that the next meeting would be the Exhibition Meeting, to be held at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge on June 26, and which would include the presentation of the Association's annual awards. He then proceeded to welcome the evening's first speaker, Dr Andy Norton. A Senior Lecturer at the Open University, he specialised in X-ray astronomy; on this occasion he would be giving an insight into the physics of variable stars.
