Bringing Solar Astronomy to 50,000 People a Year - A Fundraiser *
Believe it or not, thanks to Stephen Ramsden, Atlanta is home to the world’s largest solar astronomy outreach program, the Charlie Bates Solar Astronomy Project. Come hear Stephen tell us about sharing the fiery, magnetized plasma structures on our nearest star with more than 50,000 adults and students with over 70 appearances each year and help support this worthwhile cause.


Later this month

Exploring Tracks and Prints, Marks and Holes on Georgia's Barrier Islands *
Emory paleontologist and professor of environmental studies - and our very first Manuel's Tavern speaker - returns for a third time to tell us the stories behind the prints and tracks on the seashore and the marks or dug holes in the dunes and forests of Georgia’s barrier islands. Copies of Tony’s new book, Life Traces of the Georgia Coast, should be available for purchase and signing.

Highly Advanced Mining Techniques in 16th-Century Europe - An EU Science Café
Join us at the Alliance Française for this European Union (EU) Science Café to hear Nicolas Florsch, Scientific Attaché at French General Consulate here, discuss how highly advanced mining techniques contributed to the wealth of the Habsburg dynasty in 16th-century Europe. Snacks and light refreshments will be served.

Sun, Feb 10, 5:30p
Evolutionary Biology, Then and Now - A Darwin Day Dinner at Einstein's *
The response to this 2-speaker mini-symposium at Einstein's in Midtown for what we hope will become an annual public tradition of celebrating International Darwin Day here has been overwhelming. That said, feel free to add yourself to the waiting list. I’ll be requiring confirmation for existing RSVPs, so I expect new spaces will open up.
