For those of you in Northern Ireland this weekend:

[b]IYA 2009: IAA Event at Carnfunnock Country Park, Friday 3 April, 8 p.m.
The next IYA2009 event by the Irish Astronomical Association will be held at
Carnfunnock Country Park, Drains Bay, Larne, Co Antrim, on Friday. This will
be part of the global "100 hours of Astronomy" project as part of IYA 2009
We'll have observing, particularly Saturn and the Moon (if clear),
displays of telescopes, and a mobile planetarium show. Come and see Saturn's Rings
as they shrink to a thin line, just before they turn exactly edgewise to the
Earth in September. Marvel at the amazing detail in the craters and
mountains and valleys on the Moon, just past First Quarter. Get copies of the IAA's
fantastic competition for IYA2009: easy to enter, with lots of super prizes.
Something for everyone, in fact.[/b]
