Our next meeting is on Saturday, April 28th at 7 PM at the CCCIA Hall and features writer and local Sky Watcher Carolyn Collins Petersen. Her talk is called “Building a Space-faring Civilization”, a look at all the cultural, scientific, and educational facets that go into sending machines and people to space. It’s a fascinating topic that connects our love of the stars with humanity’s desire to explore the planets and beyond. Carolyn’s latest book, Space Exploration: Past, Present, Future was just released in the U.S. in April, and we will have copies for sale at the meeting. Cost is $27.00 (cash or credit card) and Carolyn will be happy to autograph copies. We’ll also have astronomy and space updates. After Carolyn’s presentation, we’ll set up our telescopes and check out some celestial objects, weather permitting. Come join us!
