As we come to the close of another successful NIAAS season, we are again holding a members night talk at our May meeting. This year committee member Jonathan Bingham will be giving a talk on one of his favourite atmospheric phenomenon's, Noctilucant Clouds. Jonathan has been taking images of these events for many years now and will be giving you all an insight into what they are and why he finds them so interesting!

After Jonathan's talk we've decided to finish the season with something slightly different. For the first time at the NIAAS, Chairman Philip Matchett will be hosting a society quiz, he promises that this isn't just for the more knowledgeable member, but will have a mix of questions that may baffle everyone! It won't be too taxing as all you will have to do is pick A, B, C or D! Should be good fun and the winner will get a nice prize!

After the talks, we will be holding our Annual General Meeting. We encourage all members to attend, as this is a very important part in the running of the society. If you wish anything to be raised at the meeting please contact a committee member before the night so it can be added to the agenda. Remember this is YOUR society, so please tell us how you think we can improve!

This night isn't just for NIAAS members, however, only current members can vote at the AGM, everyone is very welcome to come along and join us before we have our summer break!

Please note: Under 16's are very welcome but due to our child protection policy, we ask that they are accompanied by an adult.

As always the talk is free, a donation bucket is available at the door if you wish to support us in our work! Refreshments are available (also free) after the meeting and so is some good chat!
