Fellow stargazers: I wanted to announce in advance a Special Lecture our club will be hosting on Jan 16. Fr. Chris Corbally, S.J., of the Vatican observatory will be speaking on the topic of Astronomy in China, the ancient era, the European era, and the Modern era. He's a member of the IAU and recently returned from a conference in Beijing. Details are map available on our website at: http://www.dfacaz.org/events.html. Hope to see some of you there. Happy holidays. Dan Heim, President, Desert Foothills Astronomy Club -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
