EXHIBITIONS

7. Until 15  August at ENFO, St. Andrew's Street, Dublin 2: What on Earth? - 
all about  geology by the GSI.
 
8. Don't forget the Perseids, from now until August 14. There has been one  
reference to the radiant being "slightly to the left of the Planet Mars"  - it 
would be more accurate to say thats it's "50 degrees above left  of the Planet 
Mars". That's about twice the length of the 'Plough' or 'Big  Dipper'.
 
Clear Skies,
 
Terry Moseley
