The question of ‘where do we go from here?’ will also be examined.

Cygnus Opening Ceremony
As you may know the Cygnus observatory is has a new observatory dome installed with a remote access dome control system.
Therefore we have invited Sir Arnold Wolfendale FRS to officially open the Cygnus Opening Ceremony. Taking place before the lecture on Sunday 18th September 2016 from 6:30 pm at the Cygnus observatory.
It’s quite poignant as Sir Arnold officially opened the Cygnus observatory in 2002.
There will be a photo session with sir Arnold and other invited guests with as many SAS members as we can get in the background.
So please come along to this opening ceremony and support your SAS.
Your host : Martin Kennedy
