Author Talk & Book Signing
Join us for a book talk & signing by author Meg Thacher.
Sky Gazing: A Guide to the Moon, Sun, Planets, Stars, Eclipses and Constellations.
This captivating book offers a tour of our solar system and deep space, explaining how objects like Earth’s moon were formed and introducing the “why” behind phenomena such as eclipses, northern lights, and meteor showers. Sky gazers will learn how to find and observe planets — no binoculars or telescopes required — and star charts will show them how to spot constellations through the seasons and in both hemispheres.
Meg Lysaght Thacher was a Maria Mitchell Association Astronomy Intern in the summer of 1986, when students added to the observatory plate collection and studied variable stars. Welcome back Meg!
