The Faith on Fire Family Apologetics Conference in Anacortes, Washington is happening at the end of the month, July 29th-31st. We attended this conference last summer and it was fantastic! So that should also impress you.

Also, Royal Astronomical Society of Canada is hosting a Star Party, details are on the link. The dates are also July 29-31, and this one is a lot closer, being held in Metchosin. But, the big news is, our own dear Dr. John Blakeslee will be speaking at this even. And that, my friends, should impress you.
An Epistemology of Planets, and Diverse Other Cosmic Verses
The grandeur of the night sky has inspired both astronomers and poets since time immemorial. (Lovers, too, as Shakespeare notes, but that type of inspiration won’t be covered here.) Today, the two occupations are usually categorized within very different spheres of human activity, but astronomy references abound throughout poetry. Further, recent dramatic advances in astronomical imaging capability, thanks especially to the Hubble Space Telescope, have inspired attempts by many to capture their visual impressions in poems.
Please check out the link for the Star Party…sounds like good times.
