As I write, it’s yet another cold, grey day, but GAAC has the perfect antidote to February — on Friday night, February 9 at 8:00pm, we will bring you our annual evening of astrophotography.

Five of our best astrophotographers will each show off a handful of favorite pictures they’ve taken of galaxies, nebulae and other astronomical objects, and will tell you what each one is, how big and far away it is, and any interesting issues they had getting the shot.

This event is always a colorful, fun and exciting evening, one that will leave you with a new appreciation of what these folks do, as well as a lot of new knowledge about the strange, distant and compelling objects they photograph.

Come early to see friends old and new, grab a good seat and some great goodies, and share some terrific conversation and some wonderful views. See you on the 9th!

The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club meets from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm on the first Friday of the month at the Lanesville Community Center, 8 Vulcan St in Lanesville. See the website for more info, or the Facebook Page, or follow us @GAACster.

All are welcome, and there is no cost. Plenty of free off-street parking.
