The Art of Space by Tom Hager

Our next meeting will be Tuesday, November 13th at the corner of 156th SE & Lake Hills Boulevard from 7 to 9 p.m.

Tom Hager will present The Art of Space from the earliest imaginings of visionaries who depicted unmanned probes, moons and wonderful stars and galaxies, to impressive richer artistic imaginings of our modern era. Artists drew new-styled planets and space ships, space stations, habitats, colonies and more elaborate cities with visions of variant life. Soon artists were going for habitats reflecting what we know and we entered the digitally enhanced contemporary era.
Frank R. Paul, whose art is shown above to illustrate the presentation was born in 1884 and headed for the priesthood when, lucky for us, he became a father of science fiction instead.

The book drawing will be for Backyard Astronomy, Your Guide to Star Hopping and Exploring the Universe Robert Burnham, Alan Dyer, Bob Garfinkle, Martin George, Jeff Kanipe and David H. Levy. There will be refreshments.

The following meeting will be at The Geer Planetarium at Bellevue College December 12.

Seattle Astronomy Blog:
Greg Scheiderer writes a very informative blog site about local Astronomy events and happenings in the Seattle area. He is also an EAS member. He can almost always be found at the Museum of Flight events and lectures taking notes and asking questions. So be sure to add his blog to your Astronomy reading list. Like most blog sites, you can even set up an RSS feed to keep up on the latest entries.

He also has started a calender on the site, and he'll have a lot of good info about just about everything astronomy related on that. All local clubs, museums, and star parties.

Don't forget our blog site! Remember, EAS does have a blog site with a lot of the latest space, astronomy, some aviation, and whatever else looks good to share. President Tom Gwilym writes the blog and usually has a new entry or two every week, depending on what is going on that looks interesting. The blog is very easy to update, so there is more new goodies to read there than on the main EAS site (this one you are looking at) so make sure to check that out now and then or you can even set up an RSS feed when something new is posted.
