‘Reflections of the universe at Rainwater observatory

Rainwater Observatory in French Camp, Mississippi will be offering a free public program for this season called “REFLECTIONS OF THE UNIVERSE”. This presentation will be given on Friday, September 13, 2013, starting at 7:00 p.m. by Edwin Faughn, director of Rainwater Observatory.

“REFLECTIONS OF THE UNIVERSE” is one of our most popular programs and focuses on the magnificent visual beauty and unimaginable vastness of the heavens. This inspiring, educational and entertaining Power Point presentation is illustrated with numerous paintings by Faughn that have been featured in and on the covers of leading international space science magazines, books, exhibitions and planetarium productions such as SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN and the world premiere of  TITANIC:THE EXHIBITION. He also served nearly 20 years as the art director for the SHARPE PLANETARIUM of the PINK PALACE FAMILY OF MUSEUMS in Memphis, Tennessee.

His work is now featured on the main KEPLER website of NASA’s AMES RESEARCH CENTER. You can see some of his work at: www.edwinfaughn.com or www.rainwaterobservatory.org

After the presentation, weather permitting, an observing session will be held using Rainwater’s collection of powerful telescopes including the largest in Mississippi. The planetarium can be used if the outdoor observing is clouded out. Rainwater Observatory and Planetarium is located one mile east of the Natchez Trace Parkway off MS Highway 413 near the village of French Camp in Mississippi. Come early and enjoy Steak Night at the Council House Café, another support ministry of French Camp Academy.
