I am going to give a talk/class to a bar full of people expecting to be entertained and learn something. I am trying to not freak the fuck out. This bar wants to invite thinkers, scientists, artists etc and have then give a 30 minute talk on why you should give a shit about what they do. Not exactly the "Beer with a Scientist" events that are popping up, but in the same headspace.
My talk will be about the moon and how we came to figure out that the earth is round, moves around the sun and how people have used the sun, moon and stars to tell time since before Stonehenge. Since we are getting two Blue moons and a total lunar eclipse they wanted an astronomer and I picked the short straw. Oh, and this is going to be their first event and are going to use me and the turnout to judge if they are going to keep doing these sorts of things. So we are going to be outside. with telescopes. In January.
The title of the talk? New Moon, Full Moon, Red Moon, Blue Moon.
