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.  For more
information contact John Combes at
jncombes@aol.com.
 
Our Next Meeting
 
There will be no general meeting in July.
Wednesday August 7
at 7:00 PM.  Join us at the
Sierra College Planetarium for a program on black
holes.
  There will be a five dollar fee to attend, but
the program is
open to all Sun City Lincoln Hills
residents.  For a map,
