I,ve lived in Rugby since 1975 and never realised Norman Lockyer was born here. Im not a scientist as such but i would like to get hold of 'NATURE' magazine now well known Universally. Been meaning to contact RUGBY STARGAZERS for 3 years now after an Alien experience. Its a lot further up my priority list now. By the way Norman we are NOT alone. GENIUS.!!!!
