MC-Germantown to Host Talk on "Clouds, Rain and Wonder"
National Weather Service Meteorologist to Present Second in Spectrum Lecture Series

(Rockville, Maryland) -- On Wednesday, November 10, at 7:30 p.m., Montgomery College-Germantown invites the public to a special presentation on "Clouds, Rain and Wonder." Dr. Henry Robinson, a staff meteorologist at the National Weather Service and an adjunct professor of Astronomy at Montgomery College, will lead the discussion, the second of four in the 1999-2000 Spectrum Lecture Series. Sponsored by the campus' Natural Sciences Department, the program will be held in the Science and Applied Studies Building, Room 104.

Professor Robinson's presentation will focus on cloud formation, fog, rain, snow and other forms of precipitation and examine the importance of these cycles to life on the planet.

Spectrum Lectures are free and open to the public. Two more series lectures will be presented early next year, including one on forensic science -- the use of science in investigating crime -- and one on stem cell research and its potential for future medical treatment. Dates and times for these lectures have yet to be determined.
