BSIG Winter Presentation Featuring Ahmed Reda

March 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT

The MAS invites everyone to the virtual Beginner’s Group Presentation using ZOOM..

Featured Speaker:   Ahmed Reda
Topic: The Golden Age of Medieval Islamic Astronomy – Part 2

Synopsis:  A year ago, we discussed “The Golden Age of Medieval Islamic Astronomy”, journeying through different stages of middle eastern astronomy from preservation of knowledge, developing new theories and observational innovations.

In this talk we will continue our journey diving into more examples of astronomical theory development and observational innovations.

Visit the B-SIG Discussion Forum for more information and any last minute changes.

This meeting will be held online using Zoom. If you would like to join us you will need use the following URL:


You can probably hear best with a headset but your computer’s speaker and microphone will also work.

Meeting ID:

In order to ensure the most success we are asking everyone to follow a couple of rules:

1. Don’t turn on your camera – it sucks up bandwidth and we really don’t need to see you.
2. Keep your microphone muted until you are prompted during a question and answer session during the presentation. This will cut down background noise substantially.
3. You can request to ask a question in the chat area in Zoom and wait to be prompted by the moderator.

We hope you can join us.
Clear skies!
