Hi all,

1. The amazing Robert MCall space art exhibition continues at the gallery in 
the Town Hall, Newtownards. 
   As part of this event, Dr Tom Mason, Director of Armagh Planetarium, will 
be giving a lecture there on "Aliens" on Monday evening, 4 October. It's at 8 
p.m., & I think admission is free, but I'm not sure.

2. The next EAAS meeting is also on Monday night Oct 4th in the Thompson 
School Ballyrobert @ 8pm sharp!  The guest speaker is John McFarland from Armagh 
Observatory, and the title of the talk is "Some Astronomical Cover-ups".

It's also the anniversary of the Space Age - (Sputnik 1!), and therefore also 
October 4th to 10th. International Space Week. Countries around the world 
celebrating achievements in space with a theme of sustainable development. Ed 
Barnett, co-ordinator for Space Week in Ireland invites proposals for events.
