November General Meeting (Zoom Webinar)
The featured speaker for the November 28, 2020, General Meeting of the Astronomical Society of Kansas City is comet hunter David Levy.
His presentation, titled “A Nightwatchman’s Journey: The Road Not Taken” will be about his life and passion for the night sky and how he allowed a childhood hobby of stargazing to evolve into a lifelong passion for the night sky, interests in comets and almost everything else up there, and how the night sky has been brought to Earth through literature.
