Gloucester Area Astronomy Club Meets Friday October 14


Mars is back! This month’s speaker will be John Sheff, who will tell us all about the 2012 apparition of Mars. With an approaching opposition for Earth-based viewers and the launch of the most ambitious Mars missions ever, Mars will once again be clamoring for attention. What can we, as amateur astronomers, expect during the Mars apparition of 2012? What can we, as space enthusiasts, expect of the upcoming missions to Mars? In this talk John will give an overview of Mars as a target in our telescopes and a destination for our planetary probes in 2012.
The Gloucester Area Astronomy Club meets Friday October 14 at 8:00 in St Paul Lutheran Church in Lanesville, 1123 Washington Street.
