    Hi guys I've ordered 2 tickets but one is for a non member (my wife) as it made sense to get them at the same. How do I go about paying for the single ticket...without ordering another.

    Hi Paul,
    There are a couple of options for this. The members tickets have been setup separately to avoid confusion so that prevents us doing a "transfer" of one to the other. You could cancel one of the free ones and purchase a paid one, or you could use a bank transfer, you'd just need to detail what it's for so the treasurer can spot it.

    please count me in, I am unsure about 'setting up an account' to get a ticket. I don't really want to do that as I don't fully understand it, and, I have had some dodgy email come through recently, so count me as a Yes please... Hope that it O.K

    I have bought tickets - only $5 each.
    For everybody's information I have built and have running for testing a 3 axis magnetometer for Aurora prediction. This will eventually be posted in real time on the website. See sample below.

    We've been asked about door entry on the night (tonight). There are just 46 tickets left to the public at the time of writing. We will be able to take door entry on a cash only basis, but only up to the maximum capacity of the venue. So unfortunately once these tickets have gone, door sales will stop. If you want to be sure you can get in, please purchase your ticket from Eventbrite - click to the event below, then choose ticket sales.

    CAS Members have a separate allocation - see the special notice (12 tickets remain)

    Wow, what a night. A huge thank you to Ian Griffin and to everyone who turned out to listen to his fantastic aurora talk. Keep your eyes peeled for the Dreamliner announcement
