The Starry Messenger
Friday, October 20 at 7 PM
The Starry Messenger presented by Michael Francis, is a dramatic fun-filled adaptation of Galileo’s short treatise “Siderius Nuncius”. Galileo (dressed in 17th century costume) arrives to present a public lecture on his most recent discoveries made using his newly devised spyglass. As he describes those discoveries, Galileo’s new method of observation and measurement of nature become apparent. Sponsored by NH Humanities to Go, this program is FREE and open to the public.
This program will be presented at the Community Church of New Boston, following their Annual Chicken Barbecue.
