Another great talk by Dr. Jaymie Mathews. He has a knack for blending the right amount of humour with genuinely good science. We have all fallen at one time or another for a hoax or woo on the internet. Being able to laugh about our own fallibilities takes the sting out and reminds us to be dilligent and skepticle about claims. He also pointed out to us how important it is to research the researcher as well as the research. Great time and thanks for the Dr. Who references.

Hi all I'm new to Astronomy and only a year into living out on the coast... Trying to meet people with similar interests.... I was wondering if any of these meets occur in Burnaby or if they could in the future?

Yes, there are good telescopes to sign out. We will need your membership number or other means to show you have signed up. We have a couple of 8" and 1- 10" Dobsonian mount reflectors, a 4" refractor and several others in or loaner program. Just see me at the end of the presentation in the GMSO.
