May 12th, 2018 – Astronomical Illusions, Myths, and Misconceptions

Please join us to hear the Director of the John Glenn Astronomy Park and long-time member, Brad Hoehne, speak about some common astronomical optical illusions that even experienced stargazers fall prey to, some historical “memes” that have entered the popular consciousness, and things that amateur astronomers commonly believe that might not be so.

Also, Amateur Telescope Maker Jason Hissong will be available for our Ask Me Anything series. He will be on hand in the Perkins Library at 7:30 to answer questions about Telescope Making.

Coffee and Donuts will be provided!
