Print Friendly, PDF & Email
Michael Francis as Gallileo

GOFFSTOWN, NH The Starry Messenger, presented by Michael Francis, is a dramatic, fun-filled adaptation of Galileo’s short treatise “Siderius Nuncius.” Galileo (dressed in 17th-century costume) arrives to present a public lecture on his most recent discoveries made using his newly-devised spyglass. As he describes those discoveries, Galileo’s new method of observation and measurement of nature become apparent. After the lecture, Galileo will answer questions about his experiments, his life, and his times.

This program will take place July 30 at 6:30 p.m. and was made possible by a generous grant from the New Hampshire Humanities (nhhumanities.org).

No registration required.
