Subject: Article on Eamon Ansbro, The Argory, Events

Hi all,

1. You might be interested to read the "Main Cover Story" in the September 
issue of "UFO Magazine" which is a major interview with well-known Irish amateur 
Eamonn Ansbro & his "Optical SETI" search prgramme at his observatory at 
Kingsland Co Roscommon. This major 8-page feature by Graham Birdsall, the editor 
of the magazine, interviews Eamonn & his discusses his theories on 
extra-terrestrial probes visiting Earth, and his other astronomical interests. I'm not 
sure how long it will be available, but it is still on the bookshelves in 
Belfast.

2.  I'm still looking for people with telescopes, or without, to come to the 
special IAA Telescope Event at The Argory, near Moy, Co Tyrone, on Saturday, 1 
p.m. - 5 p.m. Please let me know if you can attend.

3. Also remember: 
Saturday AND Sunday, 8 - late, Mars at WWT, Castle Espie, near Comber.

Monday, 18.30: Wm McCrea Lecture under the auspices of the RIA, at the 
Academy, 19 Dawson St, Dublin, by Prof Wendy Freedman (Director, Carnegie 
Observatory): "Measuring The Expansion of the Universe" followed by a reception. Tickets 
from , or tel. 6764222

Tuesday, 18.30: Another RIA "McCrea lecture" by Wendy Freedman, this time at 
Queen's Belfast, in the Great Hall, Lanyon Building: "The Runaway Universe", 
preceded by a reception at 17.30 in the Canada Room, Lanyon Building (the main 
'old' building of QUB). Tickets from , or tel. 028 9027 
4729.

Admission to both these is FREE: if you think that you might not receive your 
ticket(s) in time, just keep a copy of your confirmatory email, and that 
should get you in, certainly to the one in Belfast.

Clear Skies,

Terry Moseley
