The Huachuca Astronomy Club is proud to present this special presentation by Br. Guy Consolmagno, Director of the Vatican Observatory, honored scientist, world-traveler and admired speaker.
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 coauthored 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.
When: 7 p.m.
Where: Community Room, Student Union Building, Cochise College Sierra Vista Campus, 901 N. Columbo Ave.
