We are delighted to have Stephen back with us for this special talk and I'm sure you will all make him very welcome. Stephen is a global authority on Supernova and is also the Director of the Astrophysics Research Centre at QUB. Please have a look at his university page linked here to appreciate the full scope of his work and research.

This is as always a special night in our season, as we remember the contribution that Andrew Trimble made to not just our small society but to the wider field of astronomy in Ireland. Please fell free to come along to this lecture as it promises to be a great night.

Hope to see you all there!
