Bro. Guy Consolmagno to Speak at October Meeting


Our speaker for the October general meeting will be Brother Guy Consolmagno, author of Turn Left at Orion and Brother Astronomer: Adventures of a Vatican Scientist.

Brother Guy has been at the Vatican Observatory since 1993 and splits his time between two homes. In the summer, he lives at Castel Gandolfo, Italy (summer home of the Pope), where he is the curator for the Vatican meteorites. In the winter, he lives in Tucson, Arizona, where he observes asteroids and Kuiper Belt comets with the Vatican's 1.8 meter telescope on Mt. Graham

He has taught in Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer and has searched for meteorites in Antarctica.

He is a renowned speaker, able to talk about the philosophy of science and religion and the commonality he views between them.

See next month's Ephemeris for Brother Guy's topic. Both books will be available for sale and for Brother Guy to sign at the October meeting.
