Adventures of a Vatican Astronomer
The Huachuca Astronomy Club is proud to present a special presentation
by Br. Guy Consolmagno, Director of the Vatican Observatory, honored scientist, world-traveler and admired speaker on Thursday, Nov 27, at 7p.m. in the Community Room, Student Union Building of Cochise College. He is both a Jesuit brother and planetary scientist at the Vatican Observatory and curator of one of the largest meteorite collections in the world. His research explores the connections between meteorites and asteroids, and the origin and evolution of small bodies in the solar system. Br. Guy Consolmagno has also co- authored five astronomy books including "Turn Left at Orion" which has become one of the most recommended books for beginners. In this talk he will share some of those adventures and reflect on the larger meaning of our common experience as scientists (and enthusiasts)...including not only what scientists do, but why they do it. Admission is Free. For information call 520-417-6960.
