We have plans underway to celebrate Annie Jump Cannon's Birthday with a dedication ceremony of gallery space in her honor and a flower-laying ceremony at her gravesite located here in Dover. The program and wreath-laying is from 2 -3 on December 11 with gallery being open from noon until 4.
Annie named thousands of stars during her tenure at Harvard and was an internationally known and respected astronomer. Her naming system is still in use today. Linda Chatfield will be here as a first person interpreter and will answer your questions.
Watch this space for more details or follow our event links. We look forward to seeing you as we celebrate one of our favorite Dover daughters.
