Astroblast this Saturday

As I first mentioned a couple of months back this Saturday is Astroblast 2006 at the Cambridge Institute of Astronomy. All being well I'll be popping along so I hope to write about it some time next week.

I do wonder how many people will attend. Either I've not been paying much attention it it's not been very well advertised in the UK astronomy press (and it seems I'm not the only one to get this impression). It's also interesting (and sort of worrying) to note that I appear to be the only person who has written about it in the UK astronomy blogs.

It is odd that there hasn't been more press. Having read Robin Scagell's original advertisement, on the Society for Popular Astronomy bulletin board, it does say that it is especially aimed at children, families and school teachers - I wonder how it has been advertised to schools?

I wished I could make it, but sadly I won't be able to attend, so I'll look forward to reading your write-up.

I haven't seen any publicity for it but then I have been out of normal circulation for a few months by being on the other side of the planet. I hope it was good fun Dave.

Thanks. It turned out to be a pretty fun day. All being well I'll write up a little report about it (along with some pictures) tomorrow.
