Happy New Year!
Welcome to the new look website for the NIAAS. As all of our members know, as of the 1st January 2009 the East Antrim Astronomical Society (EAAS) has changed its name to the Northern Ireland Amateur Astronomy Society (NIAAS).

To celebrate this event our January meeting on Monday 5th is our Launch Party. This will be a very special evening for us all, with both telescopes and members' photographs on display, and refreshments will be available on the night.

In addition we will be honouring Dave Mc Donald, an IFAS Astronomer of the Year and recent discoverer of the first asteroid from Ireland since 1848, in Great Famine times.

Dave McDonald with John McConnell Dave has also agreed to give us a talk on his discovery titled: "Celtic Rock - Hunting for Asteroids"

We look forward to seeing all our members along on this special night!
