Cape Cod Astronomical Society to Hear About New Horizons Mission

July 11th in Yarmouth...

The Cape Cod Astronomical Society invites Dr. Laurence Marschall back again to speak at the next meeting on Thursday, July 11.

Dr. Marschall, Professor of Physics, Emeritus, at Gettysburg College, will be talking about the New Horizons mission, which made its closest approach to Pluto, sending back striking and informative closeup views. Then, the mission went further beyond to rendezvous with 2014 MU69, the most distant object in our solar system ever visited by a spacecraft. In this presentation, he’ll show some of the first glimpses of this previously unexplored region of space and discuss the surprises and remarkable confirmations of predictions.

The meeting, which is free and open to the public, starts at 7:30 pm in the Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School Library. If you’d like, join us to catch dinner before each meeting at 5:45 at the Hearth & Kettle, Route 28 in South Yarmouth.
