Dr. Jerry T. Bonnell, co-founder of the amazing Astronomy Picture of the Day site is coming to the American Museum of Natural History on Friday, January 8th as a part of the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York’s Lecture Series.  The event is free to the public, I have confirmed that you do not need to be an current member of the AAANY to go.  I will definitely be there, so if you plan to go as well, drop me a tweet!

Thanks to alert young astronomer Elias Jordan @ksastro for letting me know about this event.
