Cannon Hill Astronomy Day

Yesterday was Astronomy and Space Discovery Day at Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham. It is the start of the activities that will take place at the park throughout the International Year of Astronomy, it was great fun with an inflatable planetarium, Birmingham Astronomical Society and us (the University of Birmingham Astronomical Society) all present to show off astronomy. We mostly launched rockets…

Birmingham Snow

I haven’t posted in a while, I’m trying to finish off the thesis and that is slowy taking over my life… if you are interested it is going well and will be finished soon! huh.gif
Anyway, we have had quite a bit of snow in the UK of the last week so I thought I’d post a few of the photos I took during the last week…
