Dr. Ed Murphy will be our speaker this month to our annual Heidi Winter Lecture. We will meet at the NRAO building down the hill from McCormick Observatory at 7 pm. Directions. This will also be the Charlottesville Astronomical Society’s December meeting.
My topic will be “The Winter Sky” in honor of Heidi. Heidi loved going outside and seeing the constellations and hearing their stories, so my presentation will be a tour of the winter constellations, their mythology, star names, and some of the interesting objects to see in the sky this winter. I will include an update on Comet ISON.
