BSIG Winter Presentation Featuring Bob King

December 16, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST

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

Featured Speaker:   Bob King
Topic: “Evenings at the Cosmic Smorgasbord”


“How far is the closest black hole? What’s a bipolar nebula? What color are Saturn’s auroras? We’ll explore these questions and more as we examine a selection of extraterrestrial morsels.”

Bob is a contributing editor at Sky & Telescope magazines and is extremely passionate about astronomy. He is an avid observer, and loves to view the Northern Lights from outside of Duluth, where he lives.

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!
