Two NEW EVENTS:

6. The IAA has arranged a special trip to John Nooney's amazing observatory 
complex at Clonkill, near Mullingar, on Saturday 9 April. This event is 
particularly for all IAA members South of the border, who can't get to our meetings 
in Belfast, but is open to all members. More details later, but note the date 
in your diary. Spaces are limited to a max of 40, & it will be first come first 
served for actual paid-up bookings!

7. The IAA has been asked to run another public 
observing/talks/display/planetarium event at Carnfunnock Country Park, near Larne, in the Spring. The only 
available date left is Saturday 16 April, the night after our similar event at 
MountStewart, near Newtownards! It's great to be so popular.... Both events 
will start about 8 p.m.; more details of each closer to the time,  but note the 
dates in your diary.

Clear, and calmer, skies to all!
