Penticton meeting Thurs. February 16

   The featured speaker for the February Penticton meeting will be Wendell Shuster who will speak on  'Historical Supernovae of the previous Millennium'.  Wendell will explore how these supernovae were recorded and observed, even though their physical nature was unknown. He will also examine where these supernovae occurred, their brightness and how they influenced cultures around the world. We will see what has happened to the supernovae since they exploded and determine how we know what types of supernovae appeared by the signatures in their remnants.

The meeting will be held at 7.15pm in the regular C O2 meeting room in the Sunoka building 
of the Penticton campus of Okanagan College.
