My talk at RTMC 2016

May 19, 2016

Cosmos-5

Noted astronomy author and speaker Ken Graun kindly asked if I’d be interested in giving one of the beginners’ talks at this year’s Riverside Telescope Makers’ Conference (RTMC), which will run from next Friday, May 27, through Sunday, May 29. My talk, which will run from 10:00-11:30 AM in Bose Lodge, is titled, “The Scale of the Cosmos”. It will be about using popular observing lists like the Messier Catalogue to understand the universe and our place in it. If any of you will be at RTMC, I’ll look forward to seeing you! You can learn more about the conference and register here.
