STARGAZERS are to get a second chance to see a presentation about the Manx Night Sky.

Chairman of the Isle of Man Astronomical Society Howard Parkin gave his first Manx Night Sky presentation at the Henry Bloom Noble Library in November.

But constraints as to available room meant ticket supply was unable to meet demand so Mr Parkin is to give a second talk and slideshow presentation on Wednesday, January 25, in the community room at the Noble’s Park Pavilion.

Mr Parkin has called his presentation The Manx Night Sky 2012, as he will be talking about what local stargazers will be able to see in the Manx skies over the Isle of Man during the next 12 months. The talk will start at 7.30pm and is expected to finish by 9.30pm. There is a £2 charge for tickets, which includes light refreshments, and tickets are on sale at the library’s ground floor counter.

Borough librarian Jan Macartney said: ‘Howard Parkin’s talk in November attracted record numbers.’
