December 2016 Meeting PDF Print E-mail

The last meeting of 2016 is on Monday 5th December, it starts at 8pm sharp in our usual venue of Ballyclare High School Lecture TheatreDirections can be found here.

david_asherOur speaker for December is Dr. David Asher from the Armagh Observatory and his talk is titled 'Did the ancient Maya observe meteor storms?'.

We are delighted to have Dave back with us again to give us another fascinating talk on the subject of meteors. If you have any questions on Meteors this is you chance to ask one of the leading experts in the field!

Dr David Asher has been a regular speaker for us, dating back to 2002! The last time he was with us was in 2012, so we are well overdue another visit from him.

About Dave: Research Fellow at the Armagh Observatory, here is a link to his page and his publications: http://star.arm.ac.uk/~dja/dja.html.

As this is the last meeting of 2016, please come along and join us for what promises to be excellent evening.

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!
