Our three day Piazzi Smyth mini-festival is about to start! We have a movie screening, a public lecture with live stereo, an array of top-notch speakers, an Astronomical Tour, and even some of Piazzi Smyth’s descendants in attendance. If you are not attending the events, watch this space for more news of how it all goes:
The registration for the two-day Symposium proper is now officially closed, but it is still possible to get tickets on the night for the movie screening (Monday at 7:30, £4) and the public lecture (Tuesday at 18:00, £8). Both these events are at the Royal Society of Edinburgh, George Street, Edinburgh.
