4. The next IAA lecture will be on Wednesday 1 December, at 7.30 p.m., in 
Stranmillis College, Belfast, when Dr Don Pollaco (QUB) will talk on his amazing 
'SuperWASP' project. (Nothing to do with 'killer bees' - WASP is for 'Wide 
Angle Search for Planets'.) More on that later.

And note your diaries for an interesting lecture at the Ulster Museum on 4 
January, dealing with the origin of life on Earth, and touching on extra-solar 
life too. More details on that later also.

Clear Skies (whatever they are...)
