There is a SAGAS / Nightlife Summer Astronomy Event on Saturday 4th July 2009 in Portsmouth, Hampshire.

The main event consists of 5 lectures as follows:

Professor Carl Ross - Possible submarine exploration of the oceans of Europa

Professor Bob Nichol - Dark Energy

Professor Don Pollacco - Exoplanets - from hot Jupiters to habitable Earths"

Dr John Mason - adventures of an Astro Tourist ( to be confirmed)

Dr Allan Chapman - A History of the telescope from Harriot to Hubble

Tickets cost only £12 per person ( £10 for members of SAGAS Societies)
(If you don't know if your society is a member of SAGAS have a look at the list on http://www.sagasonline.org.uk/index.html )

This must be the bargain of the year compared to other events

See these links for details of how to obtain tickets.

There are good transport links to Portsmouth by Rail and Road

There will be time at lunchtime for a quick visit to some of the attractions such as the spinnaker tower. There are also a lot of up market shops in the Gunwharf shopping centre for the other half.

Hope to see you there

John Murrell
