Speaker series at Meehan Memorial Library to feature “Reasons for Seasons and Summer Skies” June 22

Friday, June 22 - the day after summer solstice, the public is invited to hear Carl Bracken give the talk “Reasons for Seasons and Summer Skies” at Meehan Memorial Lansing Public Library, located at 515 Main Street in Lansing. He’ll explain why planet Earth enjoys four distinct astronomical and climatologist seasons, helping listeners better understand the night skies.

Telescopes will be available for viewing the stars. This is a program for kids and adults. Bracken is a member of the Cedar Amateur Astronomers (CAA) in Cedar Rapids, whose mission is to share its members’ passion for observing, studying and imaging the cosmos.

The free program will begin at 7:30 p.m. - note the change in time due to viewing of the night sky. The program will be preceded by a light supper with a freewill offering. For more information about the program contact Library Director Derva Burke at 563-538-4693.
