Subject: TWO LECTURES, + IAA Xmas / New Year Party:
 
Hi  all,
 
Sorry for the short  notice on the first item: I only got the notification 
today:
 
1. Mon  5 Dec, 8 p.m., EAAS Lecture: Dr. John Butler, Armagh Observatory: 
"The  Transit of Venus in 1769, Charles Mason in Donegal & the Development of  
Astronomy in Ireland in the 18th Century". Thompson Primary School, Ballyrobert. Admission 3.  

2. A  reminder about the public lecture at Queen's University,  Belfast:
Wed 5  December, 7 p.m. "DEEP  IMPACT", by Professor Mike F.  A'Hearn, 
University of Maryland. Larmor  Lecture Theatre, Dept of Physics &  Astronomy, 
Physics Building, (main campus, behind the Whitla  Hall).
This summer  the NASA Deep Impact mission spectacularly achieved its primary 
goal of hitting  comet Tempel 1 with a spacecraft at 22,000 mph. Prof. 
A'Hearn, the Principal Investigator for Deep Impact,  will explain why the mission 
was important, what happened during the encounter  and what scientists have 
learned so far.
This lecture is free, but they expect interest to be high,  so admittance 
will be through registration with the Department of Physics  and Astronomy at 
Queen's University. If you wish to attend this lecture,  please register either 
via e-mail to physicsqub.ac.uk, or by phone on 02890 973941, giving your 
name and the number who  wish to attend.
 
3. IAA PARTY.  Advance Notice: Sat 7 January. The IAA's famous (infamous?) 
Xmas / New  Year Party will be, as usual, at the Tudor Private Cinema, just 
outside Comber,  Co Down. The film will be "War of the Worlds", and we're planning 
another fun  Table Quiz (without the tables!), and there will be the usual 
selection of tasty  eats & drinks. All for a very modest price! More details 
later, but mark  your diaries now.
 
Clear  Skies,
 
Terry  Moseley
