Guruge returns to Gilman Library for astronomy talk

ALTON — Members of an enthusiastic audience enjoyed a stellar presentation at the Gilman Library on Friday, October 17 presented by local resident/author Anura Guruge. This was the first of a two part series "The Night Sky Over Alton, N.H.: A Basic Introduction to Astronomy to Better Enjoy the Gilman Library's Telescope".
The second part of the series will be presented on November 21 at 7 p.m. in the Agnes Thompson Meeting Room at the Gilman Library, 100 Main Street, Alton. 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.
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.
