Topic: Time and Date - Don't be Late!
Speaker: Lesa Moore, ASNSW
Venue:Epping Creative Centre - 26 Stanley Road, Epping
Abstract: This talk will describe the various ways that we measure time, based on celestial cycles of the Earth's spin, our orbit around the Sun and the Moon's orbit around the Earth. I'll take a look at some of the historical reformations of the calendar and more recent inventions that contributed to our modern measurement of time. 
Biography: Lesa's name would be familiar to members, as she is the treasurer and editor for the ASNSW. She has a long history of working in astronomical public outreach, including working at three public-access observatories at various times, and spending five years as an enrichment lecturer on cruise ships. Her qualification is a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Astronomy, attained at Macquarie University in 2008. Lesa is currently active in the extracurricular astronomy program at Tara Anglican School for Girls.
