January 2018 
Oscar Wilde reminds us that although we are all in the gutter, some of us are looking at the stars. The Galway Astronomy Festival now in its 14th year, has become one of the most popular events in Ireland of the Iirsh astronomical calender, where amateurs and professionals meet, essential for exchanging information, successful stargazing and mutual progress. We look forward to seeing you, hopefully under clear skies.
