For his Manx Night Sky 2012 presentation Mr Parkin 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.

Borough librarian Jan Macartney said: ‘Howard Parkin’s talk in November attracted record numbers to the library which meant that we couldn’t accommodate everyone. So, in a move – literally – to ensure more people can enjoy what I’m sure will be another fascinating presentation, we’re holding the Manx Night Sky 2012 event in the Noble’s Park Pavilion community room which is a much larger venue, has easy parking outside and disabled access.

‘The timing for the talk couldn’t be better, with BBC 2 running its Stargazing LIVE series from January 16 to 18, 2012. We’re especially excited about this as the Stargazing Live website will be promoting local stargazing events and Howard and some of his Isle of Man Astronomical Society colleagues will be hosting  a Stargazing LIVE event in Noble’s Park on January 18 from 7 to 9.00pm  to give people an opportunity to discover a little about the wonders of the solar system and our Manx night skies.'
