Yesterday I spent an enjoyable morning visiting the South West Astronomy Fair at the Norman Lockyer Observatory in Sidmouth Devon. As well as a variety of trade stands selling anything from space-art, meteorites, telescopes and astronomy books there was an excellent selection of talks from the likes of notable astronomers Nik Szymanek, Dr. Robin Catchpole and Prof. Don Kurtz. On top of this the observatory, where Lockyer carried out his famous work, was open for all to have a look around. Planetarium shows ran throughout the day. The observatory society are hoping to organize another fair next year and I thoroughly recommend you to pop along when they do, as it was a great day out.
