May 8 Meeting of the Gloucester Area Astronomy Club

GAAC May 8 Program Note

This month at GAAC we have a real treat in store, an astronomical travelogue extraordinaire from GAACster Dwight Lanpher. Dwight and his wife Terry embarked on an astronomy tour from Paris to Greenwich in 2013, and returned with a story — and pictures — of great telescopes, great observatories, great clocks, the unlikely history of the discovery of Neptune and the saga of a carpenter’s lifelong work trying to solve the problem of finding longitude at sea.
Dwight will regale us with tales of key individuals from Sir George Airy — he of the Airy disc — to Urbain Le Verrier, who predicted the orbit and position of Neptune using only mathematics. Come on in for a great time with great friends and lots of goodies, and an amazing and colorful astronomical tale.

The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club meets on the second Friday of the month at the Lanesville Community Center in the Lanesville neighborhood of Gloucester from 8:00 to 9:30. You can learn more about the club on our website, http://gaac.us, our Facebook page, at http://www.facebook.com/gaacpage or our Twitter feed, @gaacster .

Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer raises money for breast cancer care and research through delicious dessert-filled events.

For the second year in a row, the Serenitee Restaurant Group, including Alchemy and Latitude 43 in Gloucester, is participating in the week-long event.  For the event, each restaurant has created their own special dessert, like Latitude 43’s BRA-zilian Panna Cotta, and 100% of the sales from that dessert will go directly to Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer.

To participate, all you have to do is come in to Latitude 43, Alchemy or one of the other participating restaurants and order the special dessert. It’s that simple!

Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer will be held Monday, May 4 through Sunday, May 10, 2015.

Last year, Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer had almost 350 participants in over 100 Massachusetts communities and raised over $78,000. Let’s make this year even better!
