Saturday, May 8th, 8 pm

A Virtual Planetarium Show
and Star Party
The Origin of the Moon
To attend, rsvp to president@bpastro.org
to obtain the link to this Zoom meeting.
Over the years there have been many theories of how the earth has such an unusual moon, the largest when compared to planet mass. We will look at some of the origin theories and specifically “the Great Impactor”. We will add in some astronomical forensics to discuss how the impactor could have been formed.

If the sky is clear, we will have a virtual star party with the Ritchie (or other) telescope on the island.
