sarah pearceAt 7:00 PM, 2020 February 14, at the Sechelt Public Library, 5797 Cowrie St., Sechelt, the Sunshine Coast Centre of the RASC presents Sarah Pearce, MSc, whose topic is: The History of Stellar Classification (150 years ago to today)

This talk concerns the history of astronomy. Sarah will focus on a published research paper from 150 years ago by a priest called Father Secchi, whose work and writings were on his telescope findings of the Orion Nebula.

Sarah will go on to describe the history of stellar classification and spectroscopy and hope to introduce the topic in a dynamic and engaging way. Let’s explore the stars through the lens of astronomers that were working and researching with technologies from 150 years ago.

Admission is free: donations gratefully accepted at the door.
