Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society Meeting
Join us this Friday, January 11th, 7:30 pm, when Charles Phillips of Johnson Space Center will share with us about the how and why of "Satellite Tracking From the Gulf Coast." Phillips started out as an Orbital Analyst for the USAF before coming to JSC to work as a Flight Controller for Spacelab, the Shuttle, and the International Space Station program. Phillips also spends time doing analytical astronomy and observing satellites from Houston as a part of an international astronomy group.
Our agenda also includes the short talks: "Astro Oddities", "Member's Minutes", and STAR Time: a chance were you can "Show, Tell, Ask or Respond" to the group. (BTW...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 return your borrowed DVDs before the meeting or during the break. Yes, you can check them out again!
