Event description

Description

David Levy will be discussing his new book "A Nightwatchman's Journey: The Road Not Taken".

"The subject of this evening's presentation is the story of my life. Even though the cycle of my life story centers on the night sky, some of its details concern my life long battle against depression. It describes how s a child I would tear up invitations to birthday parties in order not to have to go to them. I was shy and lonely, and I did find comfort in my early looks at the night sky.

As the years passed, I turned my childhood friendship with the night sky into a passion for it. I now have many, many good friends, (many of them astronomical friends) and I have discovered or co-discovered 23 comets.

This book describes the adventures I have had over 70 happy years, along with the eclipses, comets, displays of the northern lights, and a cosmic impact. that have punctuated the years."
