Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society Meeting
Join us this Friday evening, February 9th, as Dr. David Haviland of the Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society (JSCAS) takes us "Inside the 2017 Solar Eclipse With DIY Astronomy Tools." Haviland is an experienced astronomer, having logged countless hours of observation, outreach and leadership through multiple astronomical organizations around the area (and having been a former President of two of them!) He will present Do-It-Yourself tools you can build to monitor weather and astronomical events. Join us as David shares his 2017 eclipse adventure, and start planning your 2024 adventure!
Our other short talks will be: "What's Up? (In The Sky This Month)", "Astro Oddities", the informative "Member's Minute", 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!
