The Moon; A New Look At An Old Friend.
presented by Dr. Mike Inglis
|7:00 PM Wednesday, July 15, 2015|
215 Main St. Amagansett, NY
The Moon is our closest neighbor in space, yet we often take it for granted. How did it form, why is it so important to us, and will we ever go back? In this lively, entertaining and well-illustrated lecture, Dr. Mike Inglis, Professor of Astrophysics at SCCC will give a brief overview of our current knowledge of the Moon, along with some new, and perhaps, surprising research results.
Dr. Inglis is a well-known, and respected astronomer on both sides of the Atlantic, and has a life-long passion for the promotion of astronomy and astrophysics. He completed postdoctoral work at the University of Hertfordshire and Warwick University (both in the UK) and at Princeton University (USA), and has used some of the world’s largest telescopes in Australia, Tenerife, La Palma, and Hawaii.
Following this talk at 9:00pm (weather permitting) telescopes will be available for a guided tour of the night sky hosted by Montauk Observatory astronomers.
