Last month Dr. Gaspar Bakos of Princeton’s Astrophysical Sciences Department gave a fascinating and entertaining talk on his discovery of transiting extrasolar planets with the globe-spanning Hungarian Automated Telescope Network.

AAAP’s first meeting of 2012 will be on Tuesday, January 10. Our speaker will be Michael Shara, adjunct professor at Columbia University and curator in the Physical Sciences division at American Museum of Natural History, who will discuss how novae and type Ia supernovae are connected.

As usual the meeting will be at 8:00 p.m. in Peyton Hall, 4 Ivy Lane on the Princeton University Campus.
