The Northern Ireland Amateur Astronomy Society (NIAAS)
October 2017 Meeting PDF Print E-mail

The second meeting of the 2017/ 2018 season is on Monday 2nd October, it starts at 8pm sharp in our usual venue of Ballyclare High School Lecture TheatreDirections can be found here.

keenanIt gives me great pleasure to welcome back Professor Francis Keenan from Queen's University Belfast. The title of his talk is 'We Come In Peace - Aliens In Popular Science Fiction'. It sounds like this lecture is going to be good fun for all us Sci-fi film buffs!

Francis was last with us in 2014 and I remember that talk well, as I said at the time "I will never watch another film about space travel the same way again"! Really looking forward to this lecture as I'm sure it will be full of movie clips, laughs and will question your understanding of the galaxy and our friend E.T! 

As with last month, this really isn't a lecture you want to miss!

About Professor Keenan: As usual too much to type here, so follow the link to his profile page!

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!

Hope to see you all there!
