December 11th… Save The Date!
The BAA will hold its annual Holiday Party at Buffalo State College on December 11, 2015. A long standing tradition, the December meeting begins with a short presentation preceding a great spread of food and beverages and the opportunity to meet new members and catch up with old friends. Keep an eye on this space for more information!
“FIRE & ICE” Exhibition
The Sun will certainly shine upon this icy hot exhibition of photographs by Astrophotographer, BAA member and past BAA president Alan Friedman and co-collaborator, photomicrographer Douglas Levere. Don’t miss this exhibit at the CEPA Gallery, Buffalo, NY, which runs from November 21, 2015 thru January 2, 2016.
“For this exhibition Friedman’s telescopic photographs of the Sun’s surface — which reveal its undulating, almost painterly topography — have been paired with Levere’s microscopic studies of snowflakes, exposing the hidden architecture of these tiny and delicate natural wonders” – CEPA Gallery
