We've moved this month's meeting to the third Friday to accommodate the Thanksgiving holiday.
This requires us moving the meeting to a different location to avoid a scheduling conflict at the Kiwanis Civic Center.

8:00 PM - Call to order and introduction of tonight's program:

Speaker:

Dr. Jay Reynolds, Cleveland State University Researcher and Instructor, and
President of the Cleveland Astronomical Society

Presentation:

Amazing Pluto & The Dusk of Dawn
 

Jay Reynolds of Cleveland State University will present amazing discoveries of Vesta and Pluto! The latest discoveries from NASA’s New Horizon mission shows what’s new from one of the most interesting worlds ever explored! The spacecraft helped us to realize that the surface of Pluto is very young and its atmosphere more complex than ever thought. Reynolds will also offer some the final images and thoughts from Ceres, as the DAWN Mission takes its final bow. Some photos will be in 3D and require special glasses that will be provided.
