What can I say, but a big thank you everyone who made the Salisbury Star Party a lot of fun. Met some new people, some old friends, some people I had only previously known via Twitter and Facebook and had some great chats in the pub about all sorts, ranging from what telescope to buy through to non-baryonic particle capture (with beer mats!)....(don't ask!!!). Had a night listening to one friend play some excellent guitar riffs and spend the Saturday giving and listening to terrific talks by a range of people from Dr Emily Baldwin, Ninian Boyle, Sally Russell and the legendary Damian Peach. All in all, despite the clouds, a great event...looking forward to next year, hopefully bringing a very excited (will be then) 6 year old along, as she wanted to come this time..!
