Please note that we ALWAYS encourage the public to attend ANY of our events, including meetings.
Come and enjoy the lecture and talk to us about astronomy!


We've moved this month's meeting to the third Friday to accommodate the Thanksgiving holiday.

8:00 PM - Call to order and introduction of tonight's program:

Speaker:

Mr. David L. Richards; Director, Hoover-Price Planetarium

Presentation:

"Comets, Clouds, Craters & Collisions"
Talk will include discussion of the PanStarrs Scope on Maui, and their recent findings regarding neutron stars collisions.

About our Speaker:

Mr. Richards has held the position of Director of the Hoover-Price Planetarium at the McKinley Presidential Library and Museum in Canton for the past seventeen years.  Dave is also an amateur astronomer and resides in a semi-dark spot in Dover, Ohio. His daytime activities include being a decent birdwatcher, (responsible for Audubon Society annual Winter Census, Mogadore Area, 1979-1999), adequate fisherman and an awful recorder player.

Mr. Richards last spoke to the ACA on September 26, 2014. In that talk, his topic was something near and dear to his heart: "The Future Planetarium." ACA members will be interested in whether any of the ideas presented then have come to fruition.

9:00 PM - Brief coffee-break / discussion time
 
9:15 PM - Business meeting to be called to order and will include the following:
