I received a wonderful picture
Some of the Lunar seas can be seen well. I am not the

Well not really around Selly Oak to the University playing fields, the shop and back home. The reason for this was for me to take a few pictures. One in particular came to mind the entrance to the University from Selly Oak. Now you would have thought of a nice grand entrance but no it is like a bomb site. This is probably the worst part of the whole campus – well it is actually outside but gives a bad impression. However because of this it can make it photogenic and over time I have taken quite a few pictures of this.
Outside Uni, the entrance is to the right of the picture. Also by this is the remains of a failed Guild election campaign:
I have been meaning to take a picture of this for a few weeks but only got around to it today. It seems that during the campaign, I think on the first night, someone decided to remove this from where it was a dump it in the stream. Great! I wonder how long it will stay there – probably a very long time as it is in a really bad position access wise to remove it. Oh by the way this Kobby did not get in, for the best as his stance was not the best.
Ok this is a few weeks ago, but I just had to post it the spirit of dodgy group photos! Here we are at Astrosoc:
In the picture you will see Eleanor’s nice Newtonian reflector in the foreground with me standing next to it, not sure what I am doing. You may also notice that we have the electronic eyepiece connected. This picture was taken by a Mark Rowan. Is it me or does the bloke in the back, my good friend Matt, look like a Fundamentalist! Not only does he have the beard (which has now cut off – by accident I believe) but the pose with the chin forward 🙂 .
I decided today after looking
I decided to keep the site the same colours with the

Yes the site has a new face, I hope you all like this
What a night! It went really well – I think. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves which is great. I gave a substandard speech but everyone seemed to find it humorous and not boring. The far better speech (well talk) was given by Dr Somak Raychaudhury, our guest speaker. As always he gave us a fantastic speech talking about his first experiences in Astronomy which eventually led him on to talking about the IGNOBLE prizes which are like the nobel prizes but for the worst research!
Alas I did not manage to get a photo of myself – well it would be hard it I did. I know other people have so I will have to grab them off them later (so I can shut my mom up who wants a picture of me in my dinner jacket etc!) For now here is a group photo, in which yet again I am at the back and you can hardly see me, argh!
Argh! I’m busy – well not
It is the Astrosoc Annual Dinner tonight – I have everything
