APOD Editor to Speak in Philly on Jan 5 and NYC on Jan 7

Post by RJN » Sun Dec 05, 2010 8:29 pm

As happens every year around this time, an editor of APOD will be reviewing the Best Astronomy Images for that year in public lectures. This year I will be speaking at two east coast engagements. The first will be in Philadelphia, in the Fels Planetarium at the Franklin Institute on Wednesday, 2011 January 5 at 7:15 pm at the invitation of the Rittenhouse Astronomical Society. For details, please see http://www.rittenhouseastronomicalsociety.org/ and scroll down a bit. In New York City I will be speaking in the Kaufmann Auditorium at the American Museum of Natural History on Friday, 2011 January 7 at 6:15 pm at the invitation of the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York. For details, please see: http://www.aaa.org/lectures1011 . Both events should run for about an hour and will be free for all.

As usual, there have been many spectacular images posted to APOD this year, and it will quite a privilege and thrill for me to review them. I will also review new astronomical discoveries of the year and how they have impacted our understanding of the universe. In past years we have had good turnouts, so please come early to get a good seat. Children are also quite welcome to attend.

Know the quiet place within your heart and touch the rainbow of possibility; be
alive to the gentle breeze of communication, and please stop being such a jerk.
