Dr John Mason at the IAA

Lecture: 4th March – Dr John Mason – “Mysteries of the Aurora”

Dr John Mason is a former President of the British Astronomical Association, and a full member of the International Astronomical Union. He has given us many lectures over the years, all of them superb! He knows ‘everything about everything’ in astronomy.
Next to a Total Solar Eclipse, a good aurora is probably the most spectacular sight in the sky. They have been recorded since antiquity, and they are only about 50 miles above out heads, yet there’s a lot we don’t know about them. 
As well as some lovely picturess, John will be telling us all about them, and what we still don’t know. 
The lecture is free and open to all, including free refreshments. Venue: Bell Lecture Theatre, Physics Building, Queen's University, Belfast, at 7.30 p.m. 
Thanks to the Astrophysics Research Centre, QUB, for help in hosting these lectures.
