Please join the Atlanta Skeptics on Thursday, September 3, 2009 for stargazing, dinner, drinks and conversations with astronomers. As part of the International Year of Astronomy, we’re hosting a star party to celebrate the beauty of the universe around us while raising money for a great cause.
Astronomers Phil Plait and Pamela Gay will be hosting the event, leading guests in exploration of the skies, and discussing what we see.
This event is in honor of Jeff Medkeff, the Blue Collar Scientist, astronomer, skeptic and friend to many of us. Jeff succumbed to liver cancer in 2008. All proceeds will go toward the American Cancer Society in Jeff’s name.
