Scottish Astro-Fest

November 24th-25th in Wigtown

The Wigtownshire Astronomical Society is only a few years old but the enthusiasim of its members has led it to organise this event in the County Buildings, Wigtown. At 8pm on the Friday evening Scotland's Astronomer Royal, Prof. John Brown, will present "Black Holes & White Rabbits". Saturday's activities will last all day and feature talks on astronomy (including one from our own Neil Grubb) and the Scottish Astronomers' Group AGM. If the evening is clear then expect a great star party at a site with dark skies!

Admission is free (except for Planetarium shows)
