 Johnson Space Center Astronomy Society Meeting 


Our July meeting this Friday at 7:30pm will feature Aaron Clevenson from
the North Houston Astronomy Club giving us a talk entitled "Things That
go Bump in the Night: Cosmic Catastrophes".  Come see the fascinating
ways in which outer space changes, in a sometimes rapid fashion.

What do YOU look for through a telescope?  We'll provide some
suggestions in our "What's Up in the Sky this Month" talk.  We provide a
unique take on astronomy related history in the "Astro Oddities"
presentation, and encourage our guests to come up with their own
questions that they always wanted answered in our novice Q & A Session.
We'll also discuss our upcoming Star Parties where we invite the public
to come view the night time sky.   

Our meetings are held on the 2nd Friday of each month at 7:30pm in the
lecture hall of the USRA Bldg. (3600 Bay Area Blvd. at Middlebrook Dr.)
