Find out about the best astronomy events to attend


Postby Graham Southorn » Mon Sep 03, 2007 12:10 pm

*** Please put the date of your event in the subject line so that forum readers know if it's already gone ***

[b]What is this section for?[/b]
It's for astronomy societies, planetariums or other organisations to publicize upcoming events such as talks by visiting speakers and observing evenings.

[b]Who is it for?[/b]
Anyone interested in attending local (or national) events and getting involved with their local society.

[b]Why is it useful?[/b]
The amount of information we can include in the magazine is limited to brief details, and we also work several weeks ahead of the publication date. Quite often, late breaking news such as a change to the scheduled programme, or confirmation of a speaker, simply arrives too late for us to include in the magazine. Also, we often receive more events than we have space to include in the magazine.

[b]Who should post here?[/b]
We hope this section of the forum will become genuinely useful for societies wishing to publicize upcoming events. It's also a great idea to add your events to the forum calendar, the link to which you'll find at the top of the page, or by clicking on this link:

[b]Should societies still send information to the magazine?[/b]
Yes. The magazine reaches many times more readers than the forum, so we suggest you do both. Please do still continue to send information of your upcoming programme to [][/email]
For publication, we need the information at least two months ahead of the date the event will take place.

Thanks for reading!

[b]The Coventry Astronomy Show
As part of National Science Week Astronomy Tuition and Ernesford Grange Community School are pioneering the all new Coventry Astronomy Show and we’d like to invite you to join us.
The event will take place over 3 days at Ernesford Grange Community School, Princethorpe Way, Coventry, West Midlands, CV3 2QD and each day will have a different target audience so we hope you'll find a day or two that inspires you.
Tuesday 15th March; 16:00 – 18:00: Exclusively for secondary school & college students this event includes two inspiring speakers, a digital planetarium and plenty of opportunities to extend a young enquiring mind.
Thursday 17th March; 18:00 – 21:00: This evening event aimed at an adult audience is an inspiring mix of historical astronomy (with a Warwickshire flavour) and cutting edge research. If the weather is kind we may also be able to make a few of our own observations though an array of different telescopes.
Saturday 19th March; 14:00 – 21:00: The culmination of the Astronomy Show is open to absolutely every one of all ages and abilities. With five highly professional speakers, workshops for younger participants, a digital planetarium your sure to be kept busy until dark when (weather permitting) an array of different telescopes will be turned to the skies.
