October 2013 marks the tenth anniversary of the Gloucester Area Astronomy Club! To celebrate we’re having a special “10 years of GAAC” party for our Friday, October 11 meeting, and everyone’s invited.
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!
The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club meets on the second Friday of every month at the Lanesville Community Center at 8:00 pm. More information is available on our website at http://gaac.us and on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/gaacpage . No knowledge of astronomy is necessary. The public is always welcome and there are no dues or fees.
