Hehehe looking at the program, exactly how much 'magic' is there during the day ?


Do you know if you can pop in and out for talks, you know, can you just 'appear' (conjuring joker there)
for the talks you want ?

Don't worry Kathleen no one will be trying to saw you in half.... honest!!  :)  (Although I have seen photo's of John doing exactly to the chairman of the Royal Astronomical Society :) )


Yes you can drop in and out when you like but space is limited so the earlier you are there the more chance there is of seeing the lecture(s) you want. If any one lecture is full, stop by the planetarium as we'll be doing 30 minute sessions throughout the day.  :)


It would be great to see a few CSOG'er there tomorrow as it should be a great day.  :)

Hope the move is going well Gary.


Just to say I had a great day at this event, Steve and James's Planetarium show was
brilliant as usual and the talks were very good, Chris Lintott is an excellent speaker, very
engaging.
