Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society Meeting

On Friday, we're having a special meeting!  Our main talk is by Leonard Ferguson of the Fort Bend Astronomy Club and will be on Asteroid Bennu Sample Return Mission by NASA.  Our other talks will be the always interesting "Astro Oddities", and our Upcoming Star Parties.

But that's not all:  Got a telescope collecting dust or thinking about buying one?  Well, we're going to use the second half of the meeting for hands-on demonstrations that you can participate in.  You can chose to attend either...
How to Collimate a Telescope
How to set-up a Go-To telescope
Learn how to use a Planisphere & Star Atlas to make observing EASY!
Make your own Smart Phone Holder for Astrophotography

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!
