Hi Alice,

On behalf of the members of the West Wales Astronomy Group may I thank you for such a fascinating and informative talk at the Drovers (Puncheston) tonight about the work of  Galaxyzoo.org.  We hope. now you have found us, you will manage to fit the second Monday of the month into your busy schedule  :).  You are also most welcome to visit our Forum.

Geoff

Well done Alice! At least it's clear that you showed your audience where to find us...    ;)
Oh let me just a moment stay
where time is not and angels play the paeans of the galaxies;
then speed the stardust on its flight
to change dread darkness into light, cold chaos into ecstasy!

:o :o :o Thank you very much indeed. It was a great honour to be invited to do that on my first meeting. I'd love some tips on how to explain the CW/ACW better next time. So glad you've come to Galaxy Zoo and I hope you enjoy it here!

If there is anyone here in or near West Wales, please come and join us at the links Geoff has provided!

Maybe you could give a talk in Bristol to the Bristol Astronomical Society at some point? There's always room for speakers on the club nights!

Wow . . . just . . . thank you everyone! :o

I'd love to, Rick, but whatever do I know that you don't? Count me in if you'd really like me to come. I shall need your help with the peas . . .

Is there anyone in or near West Wales on this site, besides me? The West Wales Astronomy Group will hopefully be setting up a star party at Bluestone soon. I haven't been to Bluestone but I understand it's a nicely self-contained resort and suitable for astronomy gatherings (though one local says it gives off plenty of light pollution). There'll be talks as well as observing sessions and it should be pretty interesting if anyone else would like to get involved. Hopefully I'll be able to tell you more soon. There's a meeting in a couple of weeks to arrange it . . .

Oh, and if you're a zoo member, do please tell the good West Wales folks that I am not the only person in the world who is apt to see barred spirals in my hot chocolate. ;D
