The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club celebrates their 10th Anniversary in October 2013! Come discover the wonder of the night sky on Cape Ann, and celebrate this milestone occasion! The evening will begin at 8:00 pm, and will feature a series of quick 10 minute talks by a parade of speakers, on topics ranging from trans-neptunian objects to the ten best things to see on the moon, from a selection of favorite astrophotos to the presence of water in the cosmos. Speakers will include young Clark Thakuria, Jim Koerth, Barry Yomtov, Alan Winter, Dr. Bill Waller, and a couple of surprise guests to boot.
Later there will be public observing, weather permitting, outside on the lawn at the Lanesville Community Center. There will be the usual good conversation, lots of good things to eat and drink, and an appropriately festive air. There will be cake! Don’t miss this one!
Local astronomers will be on hand for a star-studded experience. Dress warmly for the weather. Appropriate for families with children.
