Gloucester Area Astronomy Club To Meet July 8th
Gloucester Area Astronomy Club speaker and public stargazing at Halibut Point State Park, Friday, July 8 @ 8:00pm
This month’s presentation, at the visitor center: Sky & Telescope Editor-in-Chief Robert Naeye on The Origin of Everything, or How Things Got to Be the Way They Are Right Now.
How did we get from Point A (the Big Bang) to Point B (a complex civilization on a complex planet)? Join the members of the Gloucester Area Astronomy Club as Sky & Telescope editor Robert Naeye presents a whirlwind illustrated trip through this amazing scientific story. He will trace the critical transitions that led to our current existence, from the origin of the first stars and galaxies through the formation of the solar system, to the origin and evolution of life on Earth, to the emergence of intelligent beings capable of understanding where they came from.
Weather permitting, the club will have its telescopes set up for public stargazing after the talk. All are welcome.
