Who is Ian Maclean ?

I am a Promoter, Festival Director, Writer & Presenter, with a special interests in Community Festivals, Astronomy , Space science, Environmental Issues and Travel Writing.

I  had a very successful season as Production Manager for the reborn 2009 Gove Peninsula Festival. The GPF 2009 was a huge success and a you can find out what the excitement was all about at NTDarkSkies. This follows on from 5 years of organizing events for Gove Amateur Astromomers here in North East Arnhem land.

After a 2 year absence the Gove Peninsula Festival rose again in 2011, this time with me finding myself as the Festival Director. I had a great team of motivated and talented people who were key to making the 2011 festival as successful as the 2009 festival. We teamed up with the Get Down Sounds music festival (GoveFM) to bring 3 great days of music to the GPF2011.

GPF2012 is set to be the biggest and best Festival yet, celebrating 40 years of the town of Nhulunbuy and showcasing the best the town has to offer, reflecting on the past while looking to the future of the town, its people and the environment.

I am proud to be associated with the NT writers centre as the convener of Arnhem Writers, a group of local Writers, poets, songwriters, playwrights and musicians who meet monthly to showcase and further develop their craft.

Regular articles are published at EzineArticles where I report on the latest happenings in the night sky and share my experiences under the clear night skies of Arnhem Land NT and beyond.

On my radio science program “The Science Show” on 106.9 GoveFM, I have discussed a whole bunch of Astronomy, Space Science, General Science & Environmental topics.
You can access the best of these shows as podcasts at
AskTheScienceGuru , down loadable to your MP3 player via the RSS feed, or you can simply listen to them on the AskTheScienceGuru Page.

Astronomy presentations for the Public, School and Private groups, are a regular event in Arnhem land NT Australia, where I weave my special interest of Aboriginal Astronomy, into my night sky tours.

I am honored to have received a Paul Harris Fellowship from Rotary for my work throughout the Arnhem Land community in astronomy and science education.

You have to start somewhere with astronomy, and the best place is www.nightskysecrets.com where you can pick up a great audio introduction to the secrets of the night sky. It’s for anyone has ever looked up and wondered “What’s Out There ?” and “how can I discover more?”
www.nightskysecrets.com is a rapidly growing community resource, offering Astronomy news, articles, podcasts, products and services.I am excited to be sharing my Passion for Astronomy, Science and writing with you, and welcome you to become part of the NightSkySecretscommunity.
