All good things come to an end.

Those of you who joined The Virtual Astronomy Club last night will know that I announced after Karim Jaffer’s talk on the 17th of May, instead of VAC stopping for the summer, I will hang up VAC’s coat permanently. ๐Ÿ˜•

It’s something I have been thinking about for a long time now and believe me, and it has been a very tough decision to do this.
As life gets back to some sort of normality, I am getting increasingly busy.
As a result, I am finding that I am getting less time to do some of the things that I really do need to get on with, or dedicate time to other things that I really enjoy doing.

So something has to give. Well, it’s a few things really, and VAC is unfortunately one of those.

I will really miss VAC, and interacting with you folks who have joined me over the past two and a bit years, which has made VAC a fantastic success.

I really could not have done it without you all, and your support.

I do feel I have made some very nice friends, without even meeting many of you in person yet.

Also a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has presented to VAC, and everyone who kindly donated to make sure we were able to pay our invited speakers for giving up their valuable time.

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH TO EVERYONE who has been a part of our shared VAC journey, which helped in part to get us through some difficult times.

I may consider some sort of astronomy online presence later, but will look at this towards the end of this year, or early next.

But don’t forget, VAC’s not finished quite yet.
So please join us for Karim’s talk for the final meeting on the 17th of May.
Let’s go out on a high.

See you all then.

Keep Safe.
Keep Well.
Keep Looking Up.

  1. Dave, Iโ€™m away for the next Meeting so will miss it, but I shall also miss the kind faces and the enjoyment I have had from listening over the last few months. Even though I only spoke once and I will repeat it here that I looked forward to the evening when we all met so very much learning and laughing with you all it really was a pleasure to be in all of you company. I look forward to the mail from you saying we are up and running again. Stay safe. Martin

    1. Thank you for being a part of VAC’s success.
      Without people coming in, it would not have been the same.
      Keep safe and well. Oh and Keep Looking Up! ๐Ÿ˜

  2. Thank you so much for what you have done. VAC was one of the highlights of covid lockdown. I shall miss it

    (My computer packed up at the end of April, so I missed the last evening. Only now back on line)
