Our speaker at the SAC meeting this coming Friday will be writer and 
astrophographer Alan Dyer.  Alan will take us on a tour of the wonders of the 
southern hemisphere sky, using images and time-lapse movies he has taken on 
annual trips to Australia and Chile. If you haven't seen the southern Milky 
Way, you haven't seen the Milky Way! This is an astrophoto extravaganza great 
for the whole family and for non-astronomy spouses, and ends with a musical 
tribute to the Milky Way. 

Alan Dyer is one of Canada’s best-known astronomy writers and 
astrophotographers. He currently serves as associate editor of SkyNews 
magazine, Canada’s magazine of stargazing, and as a contributing editor to Sky 
and Telescope.  He has co-authored several best selling guidebooks for amateur 
astronomers, including The Backyard Astronomer’s Guide,  Alan has recently 
retired from a day job as a programmer and producer for the Digistar digital 
planetarium system at the TELUS Spark science centre in Calgary. 

SAC meetings are held in the Fleming Building at Grand Canyon University.  Room 
and parking details may be found at this site. 
After the meeting we go to JB's Restaurant on the southwest corner of Northern 
and 35th Ave. 
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
