Friday’s program at the Lanesville Community Center will feature a presentation by our own Paul Duval on his September 2015 trip to the Deutsches Museum in Munich, home to a remarkable astronomy exhibition.
The exhibits included a planetarium and even an amateur astronomy exhibit. Paul went on a one hour inter-planetary walk through a scale model of the solar system, and got a chance to observe through a number of exotic and historic telescopes.
In addition to the featured presentation by Paul Duval, Friday night is also Jim Koerth night at GAAC. Jim, one of GAAC’s founding members, will be pulling up stakes and moving to North Carolina in the next few weeks, so come in, have some cake, and say bon voyage to an original GAAC stalwart.
You won’t want to miss Jim’s farewell or this colorful record of Paul’s trip — come early for a good seat, good things to eat, great conversation, and to see and hear all about adventures of a GAACster in the Deutches Museum.
The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club meets at 8:00pm on the second Friday of every month at the Lanesville Community Center, 8 Vulcan Street in Lanesville. For more info on the club, see the website, Facebook page, or follow the club on Twitter, @GAACster.
