August 1st Guest Speaker – Peter Lazarus – Astronomy

We are very pleased to have Peter Lazarus join us to share his interest and expertise on astronomy. Peter is the webmaster from Hume U3A and the group leader of their astronomy class. Peter has also very kindly provided fantastic help and support in setting up this new website for Sunbury U3A.

Topics to be covered:

The Sun: What is it, and how does it benefit us on Earth?

The Moon: It’s the 50th anniversary of the first human moon landing. So let’s find out if the moon has a dark side or if there is a man on the moon. Jupiter has 79 moons, with names like Io, Ganymede, Europa and Callisto. What is the name of our moon?
