October 16, 5:00pm, Pluto…at Last!, presented by Mark Breen — NSO Docent Invitation 2015_smSince its discovery in 1930, Pluto has remained a mysterious, frozen challenge to astronomers. That veil began to part in the past decade with the discoveries of additional moons, an atmosphere, and its controversial re-classification as a dwarf planet. Finally this summer, the New Horizons spacecraft pulled back the curtain, revealing a wondrous, surprising object that places this tiny world into the spotlight once again. This evening is part of a collaborative event with Northeast Kingdom Astronomy Foundation, Peacham Library and Peacham Cafe.  The evening starts with appetizers and the talk by Mark Breen, continues with a dinner and then star-gazing and dessert at the observatory.  The talk and star-gazing are open to everyone and are free of charge.  Educators and those interested in being docents are invited to the dinner free of charge, all others must pay.  RSVP for the dinner is required.
