Tonight’s program is going to be awesome! Astronomy!!!
Quoted from a message from CFIC-Pittsburgh’s Steering Committee Treasurer Chuck Bobich:
CFI Community of Pittsburgh will hold tonight’s general meeting at the Carnegie Science Center, starting at 7:00 PM and lasting to about 9:00. We’ll meet in the Digital Dome, where dome operator Frank Mancuso has outlined a program that promises to be even more spectacular than last year’s, including:
- A brief review/overview of the Digital Sky System – a how and why explanation
- A few updates in the world of Astronomy.
- The Digital Universe fly through with some modifications to make it different from last year, but still “flying out to the edge.”
- “Hubble Views” – a 4 minute tribute utilizing some Hubble Telescope images.
This program goes far beyond what is normally shown to the public. There is no charge to our members for this event. However, we’ll make our normal voluntary collection to cover expenses, plus a twist…in the best secular humanistic tradition, one-half of tonight’s proceeds will be donated to the Pittsburgh Food Bank.
You can track tonight’s event at this link plus get other news from our Community’s website.
CFIC-Pittsburgh is lucky to number a facility like the Carnegie Science Center among its resources. I hope a sizable number of you decide to join us for tonight’s special show.
You are also invited to join us at Bettis Grill 36 for a pre-meeting dinner at 5:30!
