Coventry Astronomy Show – 2012

An awful lot of effort was put into the show by the organisers with a great selection of guest speakers, the mobile planetarium and a variety of trade and astronomy group stands and workshops. The public however were few on the ground. Those that did attend and support the event had a great day.

I took a few photos before the event started and have added links to the various groups that attended. Clockwise from our position.

Spaceboosters – our stand featured a European Space Agency promotion. We also featured a ‘living in space’ theme with space food, toiletry items, a russian space glove,space flown seeds,cargo bay liner and a few other bits and pieces and we were happy to talk about it. The Sokol glove was a hit with young and old wishing to try it on. Follow Spaceboosters on Twitter!

Midland Spaceflight Society stand ably supported by Mike Bryce; apparently Dave Evetts was promoting the MSS at another event. I used Mike’s camera to take photos of the MSS stand so can’t add one here at this time.

Astro Info Service stand supported by space author Dave Shaylor, Bel and his mother.
