If inflation occurred at a constant rate through the life of the universe, that same spot is 46 billion light-years away today, making the diameter of the observable universe a sphere around 92 billion light-years. Please join us to hear about the universe and a passion for learning about it.
I have been an amateur astronomer most of my life. When I was growing up in Brooklyn the skies were dark and I became fascinated by the night sky. I would spend the entire night in my backyard watching for shooting stars and looking at the planets and the Moon. I am currently on the Board Of Directors of the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York and the coordinator of Bronx activities for the club. I set up my telescope on the corner of Johnson Avenue and West 235th Street between March and October in order to show passers-by the Moon and the planets. I love getting the “Wow ” response when people see the Moon or planets for the first time through a telescope.
11 a.m. is gathering time, to meet and greet one another. We start the formal program at 11:15 and usually end about 12:30. After that, we have a time of informal conversation with some beverages and snacks. Please feel free to bring some snacks to share!
