ALTON — Local resident/author Anura Guruge will present the second part of "The Night Sky Over Alton, N.H.: A Basic Introduction to Astronomy to Better Enjoy the Gilman Library's Telescope" on Friday, November 21 at 7 p.m. at the library.
This second part of the presentation will set out to explore further afield and spend time looking at the mysteries of galaxies – not just the Milky Way, but those beyond. There will be a definite emphasis, throughout, on detailing the resources available – whether online, in the form of APPS, or through the use of old fashioned paper star -charts – to learn more about the sky at night, locate the objects worth peering at through a telescope or identify beguiling bright 'stars' twinkling in the heavens.
Though never a professional astronomer, Anura Guruge has published six books on astronomy: four on comets, one on dwarf planets and another on asteroid 4 Vesta. His Comet ISON books reached 'best seller' status for astronomy books on Amazon prior to the demise of this sun grazing comet on Thanksgiving Day 2013. His other comet book, "Comets: 101 Facts & Trivia", continues to attract attention.
The new Orion StarBlast table top telescope will be made available for circulation by library card holders over the age of 18 and in good standing on Saturday, November 22.
