AstroFest 2010 February 5-6

Post by Ian Ridpath »

The website for the next AstroFest is now up and running at

This year we are particularly pleased to have as our star speakers Jill Tarter from the SETI Institute in California (if you’ve seen the film contact, the character played by Jodie Foster is based on her) and Bill McKinnon, an expert on the satellites of the outer planets, this being the 400th anniversary of the discovery of the Galilean satellites.

In addition you’ll find the usual wide range of speakers on a variety of topics plus a special guest still to be announced for Saturday morning, all jollied along by Iain Nicolson and myself.
