The 2013 Kopernik AstroFest planning cycle has started and the KAS have announced that the dates of the event will be Friday October 4th thru Sunday October 6th. We are very excited to be hosting the event at Kopernik Observatory & Science Center in Vestal, NY for the 31st time in Kopernik history.
Details of the event are still being researched and discovered. There will be speakers on topics related to astronomy as well as observing under Kopernik’s clear, dark skies. As details become available, they will be published on the Kopernik AstroFest Web Page.
The 2012 AstroFest featured guest speakers Robert Naeye (Editor in Chief of Sky and Telescope Magazine), Nagin Cox (JPL/ Mars Science Laboratory), Father George Coyne ( McDevitt Chair of Religious Philosophy at Le Moyne College), Barlow Bob (legendary solar observing enthusiast), and Tom Field (RSpec Spectrascopy).
