Join the staff of Sky & Telescope as we celebrate the magazine’s 70th anniversary with a special event being held this Thursday at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA).The event starts at 7:30 p.m. EDT. For those who can’t attend in person (and we realize this is the majority of you reading this article!), you can follow the event live on the web at CfA's website.
The event will feature short presentations by S&T editor in chief Robert Naeye, senior editor Dennis di Cicco, and former editor in chief Rick Fienberg.The talks will cover S&T’s past, present, and future, and how amateur astronomy has changed over the past seven decades. We will also give the premier showing of our 70th anniversary video, produced by editorial intern Shweta Krishnan. To watch the video, tune into the live video feed around 7:10 p.m. on Thursday.
If you’re in the Boston metro area and are interested in attending the event in person, visit CfA's website for more details. The event is part of CfA’s Monthly Observatory Night for the public.S&T extends a deeply felt “thank you” to David Aguilar and Christine Pulliam of CfA’s public affairs office for organizing this event.
