Hi all,

Final reminders about the next two lectures:

Val & Andrew White (British Astronomical Association). 7.30 p.m., Wednesday 2 
March. Lecture Room 5, Stranmillis College, Stranmillis Road, Belfast. 
Admission free, including light refreshments. All are welcome.
   Val & Andrew are well-known in astronomical circles & seem to have been 
everywhere that there's anything astronomical worth seeing, including quite a 
few eclipses! Val is currently a member of the Council of the BAA.

2. Dr Paul Butler (a world authority on, & the discoverer of many, extra 
solar planets) will be giving a talk: "From Extra Solar Planets to 
Extraterrestrials" at 7.00pm on Thursday 3 March in the Larmour Lecture Theatre, Physics 
Building, QUB. (free parking in QUB grounds after 5.30pm, enter via University 
Square). QUB event, in association with IAA. Admission free.    
    
3. Mark McCluney's next programme will cover Armagh Observatory & 
Planetarium: 
Sat., 5 Mar., 11.30am BBC Radio Ulster: "Voyage of Discovery" Mark McCluney 
visits Armagh's Observatory and Planetarium.

4. Regrettably, the IAA's visit to John Nooney's Observatory at Clonkill, 
planned for 9 April, has had to be postponed due to circumstances beyond our 
control. More details of alternatives asap.

Clear Skies,

Terry Moseley
