Johnson Space Center Astronomy Society Meeting 


Our May meeting will feature Dr. Ross Potter from the Lunar Planetary
Institute, who will give us a talk entitled "A Crash Course in Impact
Cratering". His research investigates the formation and structure of
impact craters on the Moon, especially the large basins.


We'll discuss our recent trip to our dark site at Ft. McKavitt out in
west central Texas, as well as our upcoming Star Parties.  Other meeting
topics include "What's Up in the Sky this Month?" with suggestions for
beginner observing, the always intriguing "Astro Oddities", and the
novice Q & A session.  Our meetings are held on the 2nd Friday of each


Membership to the JSCAS is open to anyone who wants to learn about
