The Technology Alliance of Central New York (TACNY) has retooled our 103 year old Sweet Lecture Series! Now called the Sweet Science Series, the program is aimed at adults of all levels of technical understanding. Moving downtown to The MOST should make it easier to attend too! Future presentations will start earlier (5:30pm) too, with some time available to wander around the MOST, and be held the second Thursday of the month! If you have come before, check us out and tell us how you like the new format. If you’ve never been, now is the time to start participating!!
Damian Allis, director of CNY Observers and contributing astronomy writer for syracuse.com, will lead a discussion and observing session for NASA’s International Observe the Moon Night. The evening will start at 7 p.m. with snacks and the option to tour the MOST’s general exhibits for free. Attendees who wish to tour the museum’s new visiting exhibit, Nature’s Machines: Biomechanics, may pay a $5 per person surcharge. Dr. Allis will lead a discussion about the moon and night sky at 7:30 p.m., and everyone is invited outside at 8 p.m. to peer through telescopes and binoculars at the moon and stars (weather-permitting).
Dr. Allis is a Research Professor of Chemistry, Research Fellow with the Forensic and National Security Sciences Institute, bioinformaticist with AptaMatrix Inc., and High Performance Computing researcher, all at Syracuse University. He is a founding member and director of CNY Observers, monthly astronomy writer for syracuse.com and newyorkupstate.com, and a NASA Solar System Ambassador. More information about him can be found at his website.
Walk-ins are welcome, but we ask that people RSVP by replying to this message or emailing [masked] by Oct. 6. Parking is available on the street and in the lot behind the MOST.
