Mark Breen of the Fairbanks Museum will guide Brooks Library users to the stars

Mark Breen, who has been one of the Vermont Public Radio weathermen for many years, will be at Brooks on Wednesday, May 23, 7 PM, to give southern Vermonters a view of the stars, planets, meterors, and distant galaxies. Breen is also director of Vermont’s only public planetarium and he will be accompanied by the Eye on the Night Sky kiosk running a software program called Stellarium, "a free GPL software which renders realistic skies in real time with openGL. With Stellarium, you really see what you can see with your eyes, binoculars or a small telescope. Stellarium is also used in planetariums.(from the Stellarium-wiki.)
The kiosk will be on view at the Library for one month. This program is for all ages and is free and open to the public.

After murdering him, the Catholic mob mutilated his body, "cutting off his head, his hands, and his genitals... and then dumped him into the river [...but] then, deciding that it was not worthy of being food for the fish, they hauled it out again [... and] dragged what was left ... to the gallows of Montfaulcon, 'to be meat and carrion for maggots and crows'." [SH191]
