Meet Jerry Bostick Apollo 13 Mission Officer

Meet Jerry Bostick Apollo 13 Mission Officer

Saturday 26th August 2017 from 16:00pm to 20:00pm

Llanwddyn Community Centre
Abertridwr, Llanwddyn, SY10 0LR

This once in a lifetime opportunity offers you the chance to meet Jerry Bostick, former NASA mission specialist and Flight Dynamics Officer for the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission.  Jerry was part of the frontline team that helped ensure the safe return of the Apollo 13 astronauts and his two-decade career with NASA spanned the most exciting times thus far in human space travel and exploration.

Jerry will be giving a talk sharing his experiences and amazing stories as well as taking questions in a wonderfully beautiful part of Wales.  The rural location and dark skies above make for a great stargazing spot!  Together this makes for a truly fantastic and memorable weekend away with camping and local facilities nearby.

This event is in support of Llanwddyn Community Centre which needs a new roof so your attendance would be both very welcome and worthwhile too!

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
