The Crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth is a pivotal event in the birth of Christianity. As usual, the Highland Road Park Observatory's Good Friday offering is Brad Schaefer's "Dating the Crucifixion" talk. Dr. Schafer will discuss the possibilities of using archeoastronomy to pinpoint the actual date of the event.

The lecture is on Friday 25 March at 7:30pm. The lecture has no admission fee and is for a general adult audience.

This short thread implies this talk is a new offering from Brad, but actually this is his twelfth consecutive year giving this presentation. As usual it will be on Good Friday; this talk is extremely popular so it may be a good idea to come about a half-hour early for a seat.

The lecture is on Friday 14 April at 7:30pm. The lecture has no admission fee and is for a general adult audience.
