Astronomer John Goar will speak on his adventures as “Adventures as Astronomy in Chile Educator Ambassador” for the next program of the Battle Point Astronomical Association at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13 at the Edwin E. Ritchie Observatory.

Goar teaches science at North Kitsap High School in Poulsbo and is a master observer and leads telescope programs in the summer at Hurricane Ridge. He won the 2016 Hartzog Volunteer Service Award as an outstanding individual volunteer in the National Park Service and in 2017, Goar was awarded the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award for his service in the parks.

BPAA will also have special “Speaking Computer” kids show from 4 to 6 p.m. with Dr. Erica Saint Clair.

If the sky is clear, astronomers will be on hand with telescopes for public stargazing afterward.

The BPAA is a nonprofit amateur astronomy organization that operates the Ritchie Observatory and John H. Rudolph Planetarium in the Helix House at Battle Point Park.
