GAAC Has Moved!
After almost ten years at the St Paul Lutheran Church, the Gloucester Area Astronomy Club has started to outgrow the space, and we have moved our monthly meetings to the Lanesville Community Center, right up the street.
The Community Center has a lot of space to grow, all the amenities we’ll ever need, and a nice dark area outside where we can set up scopes before and after meetings. This is a real plus. Maybe in the warmer months we can even do some guerrilla astronomy there for the folks in and around Lanesville.
Come and see us in our new digs on December 14, our Christmas party! We’ll have door prizes, a new video from NASA on Saturn and the Cassini spacecraft, followed by a presentation by our own Steve K on what’s up in the winter sky. And of course there’ll be plenty of Christmas goodies to eat and lots of good conversation. GAAC charges no dues or fees. See you there at 8:00!
CAST Call For Actors-
Interested in acting? Want to participate in a twenty first century production of William Shakespeare’s "Julius Caesar"? Cape Ann Shakespeare Troupe has several roles (from 18 years and up, male and female) still open in this tragedy about ambition, power, intrigue, and politics. The play will run the first week of March at the Gorton Theatre in Gloucester, with evening rehearsals in Rockport starting in December, breaking for the holidays and resuming in January.
