Monthly meeting @ Fairview Community Center
Mar 7 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 

Speaker: Sam Potter

Title:  The Role of the Sun in Earth’s Changing Climate

Sam will discuss the role the sun has played in climate changes during different periods of Earth’s past: the last century, recent millennia, the Pleistocene, and — time permitting — further in the past.

Due to the cancellation of the February meeting the March meeting will be our annual Business Meeting where we will approve the 2019 budget.

Time permitting we will be showing member images and video of the January Lunar Eclipse.

Monthly meetings are open to all – you needn’t be an MAS member to attend. These meetings normally take place the first Thursday of each month at the Fairview Community Center in Roseville (“Great Room”). Monthly meetings start at 7:00 p.m. and last about two hours.

Each meeting features Board member introductions, general announcements, “Better Know a Constellation”, normally presented by a member, main speaker (around 45 minutes duration) and an after-meeting social gathering. Society business is occasionally transacted as needed.

NOTE: Meeting time and / or location sometimes change to take advantage of special program opportunities. Please check the MAS homepage at www.mnastro.org for the latest information regarding the meeting.
