Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society Meeting

Be sure to get out and look at the bright 'star' to the East right after sunset.  Use binoculars or a telescope and you'll see its Jupiter!  It's nearing opposition which means it's as big and bright as it gets.

This Friday, Rodney Rocha returns for Part 3 of his Celestial Mechanics Presentation.  His crowd participatory demos are entertaining and explain the subject well.

Our other amazing talks are: "Astro Oddities", the informative Member's Minutes, "What's Up in the Sky this Month?", a calendar of this year's Upcoming Star Parties, the Novice Q&A, and a report of the Trip to Our Dark Site at Ft. McKavett.

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 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 Mr. Gatti's Pizza at El Camino Real and 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!
