Johnson Space Center Astronomy Society Meeting

Our April Meeting this Friday will feature JSCAS' Paul Maley who will talk about his trips to study Auroras (always great photographs!) and the opportunity to observe and help record an Upcoming Asteroid Occultation.  Come and find out how YOU could help determine the size and shape of an asteroid from your own back yard!

We'll also have several other short presentations including the April Sky's Observing Targets "What's Up This Month?" with suggestions for beginner observers, the always-intriguing "Astro Oddities", dates for our upcoming fun and public Star Parties (which need your help), some informative Member's Minutes, the novice Q & A Session, and a Recap of our recent Star Party Trip to Ft. McKavett where you can read a newspaper by light of the Milky Way!

JSCAS is open to anyone who wants to learn about astronomy and membership is FREE!  After joining, you'll have access to our Loaner Telescopes and our amazing Astronomy DVD Library with 100's of choices to learn from (from Astronomy Magazine, NASA, Discovery, etc.).  Our meetings are held on the 2nd Friday of each month at 7:30 pm in the lecture hall of the USRA Bldg. (3600 Bay Area Blvd. at Middlebrook Dr.)  Pizza and refreshments follow at Double-Daves on Bay Area Blvd.  For more info, see our website at jscas.net

Note to all those who have borrowed DVDs from the JSCAS Media Library:  PLEASE BRING THEM BACK AT THE BEGINNING & DURING THE BREAK AT THIS MEETING.  YES, you can check them out again...or acquire new ones!
