South Bay Astronomical Society meeting June 6 2008

What is this monster? It is a GOTO Chronos Planetaruim projector, installed at El Camino College Planetarium in Torrance, California.

I attended the meeting last night, as Professor Perry Hacking gave a demonstration of the equipment, which is so realistic it looks as though the planetarium dome disappears and the real sky is exposed above our heads.

I am the featured speaker at the next SBAS meeting on July 11th, and I will be giving a talk about the Cassini Huygens mission to Saturn.
