January 2014 Update: "Cosmic Vistas: The Universe in Colour" talk at the Galway Astronomy Festival 2014 (City of Stars)
On the 1st of February 2014, I'll be giving my Cosmic Vistas: The Universe in Colour talk at the Galway Astronomy Festival 2014. I'll have the large 30x20 framed images of the award winning "Rho Ophiuchi and Orion Nebulae", as well as some of the smaller 15x15 images on view. This promises to be a great day out with a variety of speakers giving lectures, workshops, and trade stands on view.
