Aug. 23 'Window to the Universe' looks at global warming

KELSEYVILLE, Calif. – Climate change and global warming have been hot topics for some time. On Saturday, Aug. 23, at 8 p.m. popular Taylor Observatory lecturer and amateur astronomer Stephen Kane presents the scientific side of global warming.

The talk begins at 8 p.m. at the observatory, 5725 Oak Hills Lane in Kelseyville.

Kane notes that data continue to confirm the models stating that human activity is accelerating a radical change in global climate.  

In his opinion, there is no stopping the mountains of ice that have begun to fall into the sea in the far north and south latitudes. These events and others have huge implications for the future of our existence on earth.  

As always, Kane’s emphasis falls on the scientific data behind global warming phenomena.

The Window to the Universe event includes the lecture, a planetarium show and telescopic viewing of the striking Lake County night sky.  

This month's Windows event nearly coincides with the new moon, so sky viewing should be especially good.

Admission for the talk, planetarium show and night sky viewing through the Taylor telescope is $5 for adults, $3 for ages 12 and under and free to observatory members.  

For further information visit www.taylorobservatory.org or call 707-262-4121.  

Friends of Taylor Observatory-Norton Planetarium organizes the Taylor lecture series.
