Meet the Papal Astronomer on 10th August

There’s an opportunity to Meet Papal Astronomer Bro Guy Consolmagno, author of Turn Left at Orion, at Blackrock Castle Observatory on Saturday 10 August, from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.  Entrance is by ticket available free from Cork Astronomy Club, email your request to info@corkastronomyclub.com.

Bro Guy, an incisive and entertaining speaker,  will give a talk on an aspect of astronomy,  and will let us know his lecture title nearer the time.   The author of numerous books on astronomy,  Turn Left at Orion is perhaps his best known.

For more about Bro Guy, see his page on the Vatican Observatory website.

The lecture theatre at Blackrock Castle only holds 50, and priority for tickets goes to Club members first come first served – so please don’t be too disappointed if we can’t accommodate you.  A group of us met Bro Guy at Castle Gandolfo in April when he was our guide on a visit to the papal observatory.
