General Meeting - Topic - Tidal Forces in the Solar System

Friday, February 12, 2016 7:00 PM

Guest Speaker, Ron Wood, will be telling us about "Tidal Forces in the Solar System & especially our Moon" Tidal forces affect not only Earth's oceans but even the length of our day, the Rings of Saturn and volcanoes on Jupiter's moon Io. Ron and his wife Maura are long time friends of ACT and host our annual Messier Marathon coming up March 5th.

This indoor, public event is held each month to discuss past, present, and future club events and activities as well as Astronomy news. Please see the comments left on this event's page below the map for additional information about the location.

After the meeting, we all go to eat at one of Jenks great restaurants. It's always a great time- my favorite part!

The Planetarium is located on the third floor of the Math and Science building. You will see a table in front of some double doors that lead to the planetarium.

We hope to see you there!!
