Hi,

Science Week Ireland is on from November 9th to 16th this year.

There is a lunar eclipse on the 8th, but it might be of interest to some societies to organise a public night that week. It would be good to see the various clubs all out for the same event on the same night :-) We could pool together and organise (and promote!) this as one big IFAS event hosted by the various clubs and societies if there is interest.

The skies could be more interesting, there will only be a fairly full moon to see that week, with perhaps glimpses of Mars and Saturn.

Events need to be `booked` by October 7th. So perhaps its something to talk about at the weekend, for those of you on the IFAS council :-)

Cheers,
~Al

I think a co-ordinated Nationwide IFAS Moon watch hosted by all the differnt Member Clubs is a cool idea.

It could be a very good source of PR for IFAS. Basically we could gon on the radio and say "The IFAS member societies are holding a Moon Watch on this night, for more details contact your local club".

I will need to run it by the Maynooth committee but I don't see there being a problem.

Even if it will not be done as an IFAS event I am still going to try get something organised for the Eclipse here in Maynooth.

Well, if people can give an idea of their own media outlets, that would be a start. For one, I have a hand in CKR FM (97.3 & 97.6FM) (check out Wacky Saturday 12-2pm where I'm in the 'background'!), so I MIGHT be in a position to get some live airtime on the Afternoon Show during the week in the weeks prior to any events... And some TAS members might be able to get onto Midlands Radio 3 too.

I'll look into it...

I would probably be able to pass the word around weblogs, as well as posting it to my own one....
