A date for your diary

As we've said before, this year CAS is planning to invite professional astronomers to speak at some of our meetings and the first such session is our next CAS Meeting on 27th March at 7:30pm when Dr John Davies of the Royal Observatory, Edingburgh will be speaking on the contentious subject of "Why Pluto is not a planet". Since he was at the infamous recent IAU meeting where this was decided, we should ge the story from the horses mouth!

We'd really like a good turn out for the meeting and have extended an invitation to other local astronomy societies in Carlilse and Kendal. The cost for the meeting will be £2 if paying on the night, for full CAS Members the cost is covered by their membership fee.

There will be a further reminder and more details of the evening closer to the date, but keep the date free in your diary now.
