Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society Meeting

Join us this Friday night, November 10th, as Jeff Stone from the Johnson Space Center explains "What's a Star Party?"  Jeff, who has been with JSC since 1989, is a flight controller and crew trainer, and has been involved in almost 100 Space Shuttle missions, numerous ISS "inside" maintenance repairs, and also the Hubble Repair Mission.  He is also the JSCAS "IFM Guy" as an avid amateur astronomer who loves teaching others the wonders of the night sky with his infamous "Hockey Stick Scope".  Here Stone talks about why to support and attend public star parties.
Our other short talks will be: "Astro Oddities", "What's Up (This Month)?", the informative "Member's Minutes", a Calendar of this year's Upcoming Star Parties and the Novice Q&A where you get to ask us questions about astronomy!  (After-Meeting discussions continue at Mod Pizza.)

JSCAS is open to anyone who wants to learn about astronomy and membership is FREE!  (It's the best offer money can't buy!)  After joining, you'll have access to our amazing Astronomy DVD Library with 100's of choices to learn from (from Astronomy Magazine, NASA, The Great Courses, 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., aka The Lunar & Planetary Institute)  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!
