From: TerryMosel@aol.com Date: Tue, 4 Feb 2003 16:59:44 EST Subject: Lecture & Comet Hi all, Just back from my lecture in Cork! Our next IAA lecture will be Wed night, 5th Feb, when Prof Tom Ray, of Dublin Institute of Advanced studies will talk on "The First Stars - Emerging From The Dark Ages". It's at 7.30 p.m., lecture room 5, main building, Stranmillis College, Belfast. Admission is free, and all are welcome. I grabbed a quick look at Comet NEAT in my 10x50 binocs in a dark spot on my way home from Cork: About magnitude 4 t0 4.5, with a nice tail at least 1 degree long. So it's still brightening, & well worth observing now, before the Moon gets too bright.
Last Revised: 2003 February 5th
