Last General Meeting

On October 8, 2011, the SJAA General Meeting featured Dr. Puragra Guhathakurta of Lick Observatory, on “Our Place In The Cosmos”. The audience was very appreciative of his explanations of galaxy formation. One feature of his talk involved a computer simulation of two interacting galaxies. The simulation would pause, rotate to a particular orientation, then show an actual picture showing two galaxies looking like a dead ringer for the simulation.

Upcoming speakers scheduled include:

November 12 - Rogelio Bernal Andreo, on “Deep Sky Wide Field Imaging”

December 10 - Dr. Bruce Margon, his topic: “Glimpsing the Edge of the Universe: Results from the Hubble Space Telescope”.

January 7 - Dr. Alex Filippenko on “The Birth and Early Evolution of the Universe”
