The Forsyth Astronomical Society will host their next monthly meeting on July 25th at 7:30 PM at Kaleideum (formerly Sciworks) in Winston-Salem. The program for this month is titled:
The Eclipse: Science, History and Spirituality
The presentation, by Roy Dorone, the society’s vice-president and associate professor of History at Winston-Salem State University, looks at some of the most scientifically important eclipses and at the evolution of human understanding of one of the most exciting astronomical phenomena. We will discuss the different perceptions of eclipses and what they meant, and continue to mean, for societies around the world.
Following the presentation portion, we will have a brief business/planning meeting and as always, there will be an informal social gathering 30 minutes or so before the meeting. All meetings are open to the public, free of charge and all are welcome. Hope to see you there.
