Subject: Sky at Night Mag features IAA, Lectures, TV, Connacht Star Party

 
Hi all,
 
If you wish to be removed from this email list, just let me know by  return.
 
(I've been off-line for bulk-mailing for nearly 3 weeks due  to problems with 
AOL, so I wasn't able to alert you to the last IAA lecture, nor  the Connacht 
Star Party, nor various other recent events. Sorry....)

1. The IAA is the featured society in the February issue of the Sky At  Night 
Magazine, on p.74. 

2. The STARDUST space probe has successfully returned to Earth with  samples 
of material from Comet Wild 2. Analysis will take probably several  weeks for 
even preliminary results.
 
LECTURES:
3. The 2006 Tyndall Lecture will be given by Dr Karen Bultitude and Dr  Laura 
Grant entitled 'Our Planet - Our Future'.
Dates &  venues:    31 Jan at IT Waterford;  2 Feb at UCC,  Cork;  3 Feb at 
NUIG, Galway.
