The February meeting of the Gloucester Area Astronomy Club takes will be at 8:00 pm on the 14th, Valentine’s day, under a full moon — an auspicious occasion. And what could be a more romantic way to spend an evening than a great astronomy club meeting? Bring your valentine!

Speaking this month will be the personable and charismatic Dr. Mario Motta, with his first-hand tale of the planning and construction of the biggest telescope on Cape Ann. You can see the giant observatory dome housing the meter-class instrument, if you look off towards Annisquam when you come in over the bridge (unless of course you’re supposed to be driving). 

Later this year the club will have all sorts of telescopes for you to see up close during the second annual “Introduction to Amateur Astronomy” night, but this month will be your only chance to see how to make one that won’t fit through the door. Come on in and enjoy the holiday goodies, the great conversation, and a once-in-a-lifetime presentation.
