A few members of the group of Year 11 pupils who attended an Astronomy presentation in Strabane’s Alley Theatre on Tuesday 9th April.
The talk was delivered by Armagh Planetarium to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Annie Russell Maunder, a very important figure in the world of Astronomy who was born in Strabane on 14th April 1868, and aptly titled “From Strabane to the Dark Side of the Moon”.
