Octagon Barn Lecture and Star Party, Friday, August 14th, 8 pm “The Copernican Revolution: Myth vs. Reality”

Presented by Harry Ringermacher, Ph.D.

Born just twenty-two years after the invention of Gutenberg’s printing press, Copernicus lived in a tumultuous and changing time. His work challenged the familiar order of society. This presentation will illuminate you on his life and times, his place in society, his relationship with the church. It will explain the science and his ideas that changed it. We will learn how time has remembered Copernicus, the man who on his death bed held a copy of his book and exclaimed with his last breath, “My life – the stars!”
