February Club Meeting: Galway Astronomy Club’s next meeting will take place via Zoom on Monday 1st February at 8pm.

Talk:”What is truth?, desiring to understand our world by learning to read ‘the two books’ ”
Fr Michael Connolly is a priest in parish and chaplaincy ministry, who holds an M.Sc. and a Ph.D. in high-energy astrophysics, obtained while working with the VERITAS collaboration, Harvard-Smithsonian astrophysical observatory near Tucson, Arizona.
His talk centres on the search for truth, and how this search requires two foundational sources, represented by “two books” from 1 author. The heart of this search is the several millennia old encounter between the secular and sacred, a respectful dialogue, at times fraught with difficulty, which began among other instances in the ancient science of astronomy. This talk is aimed at a young adult audience, having some fluency in the sciences and philosophy, but it will be pitched at a level accessible to all “seekers of truth”.
The Zoom meeting details are as follows.
