I want to thank my good friends in the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York (AAA) — Marcelo Cabrera, Susan Andreoli, and David Kraft — for inviting me to speak this fall at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

On Friday, October 16, 2015, I’ll deliver a lecture, “The New Cosmos: Answering Astronomy’s Big Questions,” a talk that broadly describes many of the “big science” themes of discovery in my forthcoming Cambridge University Press book. The American Museum of Natural History lectures date back to the 1920s and have seen a wide range of scientists and authors sharing their thoughts on the universe.

Moreover, I will be delighted to participate and speak at the 20th-anniversary celebration of StarFest in Central Park the following night with members of the AAA and thousands of New Yorkers. This is held each year at Sheep Meadow near 65th Street and Central Park West.

You can find out more about the AAA’s programs on their site, and I will update with more specific information as the time approaches . . .

See you in New York!
