Thanks to #UCD, #Insight, #SFI, #IAS, #OPW for a great night of Astronomy in the Phoenix Park. 200 turned up to view the stars and chat to astronomers. Great to see old friends at my talks including Ireland’s premier science journalist, @claireoconnell .

Establishment of A Lunar Observatory Group

was delighted to be invited by the Irish Astronomical Society to coordinate the establishment of the Lunar Observation Group (LOG). As part of our program of activities we are launching ‘Moonlight’, the newsletter of LOG. You can download your free copy here and I hope to hear from you. The IAS is always looking for new members and it is great to have access to their expertise and equipment. If you would like to develop your interest in astronomy please do contact the IAS or any local Astronomy club. – I wish you clear skies.
