Local astronomer Scott Negley will review the mid-November Leonid meteor shower, which will be peaking during the evening of Monday, November 16th and early morning hours of the 17th. Scott's presentation will feature a variety of space wonders, including comets, meteors, and asteroids that have fascinated stargazers over the years. 

Scott Negley owns and operates a portable planetarium system for presenting astronomy programs to elementary and middle school classes in northern New England. Educated initially as an engineer, a binocular tour of the heavens ignited a passion for the stars that led him to the University of Pennsylvania for a M.S. degree in astronomy and a 40+ year career as an astronomy educator. He has been privileged to convey the splendor of the universe to students of all ages, initially as a university instructor, then as a school district planetarium director, adult school teacher and elderhostel instructor. As a Solar System Ambassador, Scott enjoys the opportunity to educate and inspire others with NASA's magnificent discoveries.
