Douglas Award 2012

2012 Award: Mark Coady

The major award of the RASC Kingston Centre, the A. Vibert Douglas Award, named after the founder of the Kingston Centre will be presented for: Service (including longstanding dedication, or a recent contribution or contributions to the Centre or the Society) and/or an astronomical achievement (including a discovery, invention, literary presentation, or related achievement, any of which may be a recent and one-time matter or an achievement over many years).

Mark Coady has been an associate member of the Kingston Centre for some years and recently became a regular member. He has volunteered with vigor to lead the Fall'N'Stars Star Party for three years now (2010-2012) and has assisted before that. Mark has also made contributions to the light pollution abatement front, both serving for some time on the RASC Light Pollution committee, and giving many local presentations in and around his home base near Peterborough.

All of this shows his above and beyond-ness dedication to furthering astronomy in the public domain.
