Johnson Space Center Astronomy Society Meeting

This Friday, our March meeting will feature Dr. Paul Schenk of the Lunar & Planetary Institute who will tell us what scientists are expecting to see when two different missions encounter the dwarf planets Pluto & Ceres, and will share the top questions scientists hope to answer with the data they will gather this year.  This is a talk you won't want to miss!

Our new feature, Do It Yourself Astronomy, will join our other regular topics including 'What's Up in the Sky This Month?', with suggestions for observing, the intriguing 'Astro Oddities', the novice Q & A Session where you can ask your questions to our membership, a preview of our upcoming star parties, including our trip to our dark sky site at Ft. McKavett, and the informative Member's Minutes.

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 (produced by Astronomy Magazine, NASA, Discovery Channel, 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!
