Join us on September 13th 2019 at 7:30pm – Admission is free and everyone is welcome!

After our 2 month summer break, we’re back to our regular monthly meetings. Join us on September 13 at The Hamilton Spectator Building as our very own Chair John Gauvreau continues from his earlier topic titled “Visions of the Future” about 3 artists work as they conceptualized the future of space travel. In part 2, John looks backwards at how the moon was depicted in art, comparing pre-telescopic views, to more recent detailed ones and finally how it is portrayed in the photographic age.

Non-members are welcome

Non-members are welcome to join us at our general meeting events to see what we’re all about. You’ll find a club full of enthusiastic amateur astronomers passionate about this fascinating science and hobby. We’re confident you’ll want to become a member of the Hamilton Amateur Astronomers and join us in exploring this fascinating hobby.
