Hi all,

1. Don't forget the special ESA Astronaut event on Tuesday 25 January:

shook the World - can science prevent loss of life?

7. CONNAUGHT STAR PARTY: 
Another reminder about the excellent Connaught Star Party, in Galway, on Sat 
29 January. Visit: www.galwayastronomyclub.ie Last year's event was 
excellent: I'm sure that this one will be just as good! 

8. Finally, it's with great regret that I have to tell you of the death of 
Bill Dumpleton, recently Assistant Astronomer at Dunsink Observatory. Bill was 
always very helpful to the amateur community, and after his retirement a few 
years ago he took on the role of ' Observing Director' at Birr Castle, where he 
was unable to do much because of the telescope being temporarily U/S. He then 
moved to France, where he died suddenly a few days ago.

Clear Skies,

Terry Moseley
