Keswick Mountain Festival Event

Hopefully you've already got 19th May marked in your diary for a CAS Event, if not mark it now.

As part of the Keswick Mountain Festival we will be hosting a number of events in Keswick on Saturday 19th May. Robin has kindly done all the hard work organising this, and has managed to persuade BBC Sky at Night presenter Chris Lintott to come up and do a talk for us in the evening. Full details of the day's events are on this factsheet (pdf file).

Chris' talk, "The First Stars" will be in the Methodist Church Hall on Southey Street and will start at 7.30pm. Cost for the event is £4 (£3 for under 16) contact Robin direct at robin@cockermouthastronomy.co.uk to reserve tickets. Like all the events, the talk is open to the public, and we hope to see members from our fellow Cumbrian Astronomy Societies as well.

Weather permitting, we'll have a number of observing sessions during the day and on the Saturday evening. If you can attend and bring a telescope that would be a great help. Please let us know in advance if you can assist.

More details and further reminders nearer the event, and at our April CAS Meeting.
