M20

The Lincoln Hills Astronomy Group general
meetings provide residents, from
beginners to experts,
with a forum to increase their knowledge in astronomy,
and to meet
people with like interests.  General meetings

begin with an informal "What's New in Astronomy", 
followed by
the main presentation, and finish with an
informal Q & A session.
 
Meetings are supplemented
with our annual
planetarium trip.

Our Next Meeting
 
Wednesday June 5 at 6:45 PM, in the Orchard
Creek Ballroom,
astronomer Tim Unruh returns to give
a follow up presentation on tektite mimicry.  These are
like terrestrial obsidians but differ from them and other
terrestrial volcanic glasses by their lower water content
and different chemical makeup. 
This presentation is
free, and open to all Sun City
Lincoln Hills
residents.
