Subject: Lecture, Birr WSP, Sky at Night Mag

Hi all,
 
1. There's a huge amount of interest in the IAA lecture tomorrow (Wed)  
night, by Prof Chandra Wickramasinghe, at 7.30 p.m., in Stranmillis College,  
Belfast, as already notified, so come early to be sure of a seat.
 
2. It's less than 3 weeks to the famous and unmissable  annual Whirlpool Star 
Party at Birr, Co Offaly, organised by the  indefatigable David Bell, Michael 
Dee, Stephen Gleeson, Mike Murphy, Tony  O'Hanlon, Michael Scully, et al, of 
the Shannonside Astronomy Club  (apologies to anyone omitted!). Details are on 
their website.
   If you haven't already booked your accommodation, you had  better do so 
soon. I attach an updated list of all known accommodation in  the area. It's in 
RTF format, which should keep all the bugs at bay. Please  let me know of any 
errors or omissions.
 
3. Some of you may like to note that the October issue of the BBC Sky At  
Night Magazine, out about now, contains an excellent article on the solar  
eclipse of 3 October, by a certain Mr T. Moseley, well noted for  his incomparable 
modesty. (And no, he doesn't get paid any more, no  matter how many copies of 
the magazine are sold!).
 
Clear Skies,
 
Terry Moseley
