Description: Long Island Science Astronomy Lecture Turn Left At Orion - After 30 Years of Turning, Are We There Yet at Ross School Senior Thesis Center in East Hampton, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York.

With over 100,000 copies sold since first publication, Turn Left at Orion (co-authored by Br. Guy Consolmagno and Prof. Dan Davis) is a unique guidebook to the night sky and the use of small telescopes. This classic, widely considered the "bible" of amateur astronomers, provides all the info to plan observing sessions and quickly locate celestial objects. According to the authors, the adventures of getting the book written and published were almost as much fun as all the observing done for the book! Br. Guy and Dan will tell stories of the steps and missteps, that have gone into various editions of their book and give the audience a sneak preview of things to come.

This lecture is free, but donations to help support Montauk Observatory's educational program are appreciated. $10.00 suggested. For further information, contact montaukobservatory@gmail.com.

Br. Guy Consolmagno SJ is the Director of the Vatican Observatory, located in the papal summer gardens outside Rome with a modern telescope in Arizona. After post-doc research and teaching at Harvard and MIT, Br. Guy was in the Peace Corps in Kenya teaching astronomy/physics. He joined the Jesuits in 1989, in 1993 became a Vatican Observatory astronomer and curator of its meteorite collection (the largest in the world). He has written 5 other books, including God's Mechanics: How Scientists and Engineers Make Sense of the Universe.

Professor Dan Davis
Professor Dan Davis is Chair of the Department of Geosciences at Stony Brook University. While his main areas of research are in the tectonics of plate collisions and geophysical imaging of glacial and coastal deposits, he has had a life long interest in astronomy that nearly led him to choose it as his field when working as an undergrad in the Astrophysics Department at Princeton University.

Montauk Observatory
The Montauk Observatory Inc. is a not-for-profit organization, designated as a 501(c)3, with a Mission to provide free year round educational programs, including astronomy lectures and professional planetarium shows. The goal is to build a wonderful observatory building on the East End of Long Island for its state-of-the-art professional grade telescope and to provide discovery programs accessible via the internet.

The leadership of the Montauk Observatory believes that astronomy is a pathway into the study of science which is so often not available to young people and the public today. Our futures are linked to the re-emergence of the love of science and the discoveries that will bring.
