Event Description:  The IAA is running two events for WSW. First is the lecture on Wed 8 October - see below. Second: we will be running a major public astronomy & space outreach event in conjunction with the Ulster Museum on Saturday 11 October. This will be at the Museum on Stranmillis Road, from 11.00 to 17.00. This will comprise: A. starshows with a space theme in the ever-popular Stardome (loaned courtesy of Armagh Planetarium) at 45 minute intervals starting at 11.00. B. Solar observing from the Museum forecourt, weather permitting. We will have various special safe solar telescopes to show incredible views of our nearest star, which still poses many puzzles for astronomers. C. If it's cloudy, we'll have the telescopes indoors as part of our major exhibition. D: Exhibition: all things astronomical and space will be on display, including meteorites which are actual rocks from space, and various items of space memorabilia E. Meet our own 'Ulsternaut', Derek Heatly from Groomsport, who will be the first person from N. Ireland, if not all Ireland, to fly into space with Virgin Galactic. F: Ask a question about astronomy or space - our 'Experts' will be there to try to answer them.
