Club Meetings for 2023

March 14 - Sonny Manley on Solar Astrophotography

April 11 - Dr. Christopher Hamilton on Volcanoes in the Solar System

Dr. Hamilton's research focuses on geological surface processes to better understand the evolution of the Earth and other planetary bodies. His specialty relates to volcanology and specifically to lava flows, magma-water interactions, and explosive eruptions using a combination of field observations, remote sensing, geospatial analysis, machine learning, and geophysical modeling. These topics provide insight into the evolution of planetary interiors, surfaces, and atmospheres through magma production, ascent, and volcanism.


August 8  - Professor Shane Byrne on “Exploring a dynamic Mars, one giant image at a time” 


November 14 - Tentatively - Carl Zambuto, mirror maker and genius.
