Point Arena Lighthouse Lecture Series
December 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On Sunday, December 10, at 4 p.m. Point Arena Lighthouse Keepers, Inc. Board President Glenn Funk will present Augustin’s Photons, which will introduce attendees to the charismatic French physicist, Augustin-Jean Fresnel. Thanks to his work we have highly efficient head and tail lights for automobiles, pocket magnifiers the size of credit cards, wide-angle view panels and perhaps best of all, the magnificent lens in our Fog Signal Building museum. What was Fresnel’s great discovery and how does it work? Is it still valuable today? Does it have a future?
