Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society Meeting

For our meeting this Friday, April 10th, Justin McCollum will be telling us about 'Mechanics of Lunar Motion'.  His presentation will be live streamed starting at 7:30 PM on YouTube at the link below.  (You may ask questions during the meeting in the comments section of the YouTube livestream (if you have an account that will allow you to leave comments) or by sending your question by email to mccollumjjj at gmail.com<mailto:mccollumjjj at gmail.com>).


Mr. Justin McCollum is an Education Coordinator in the Department of Physics at Lamar University.  Justin helps in the organization and development of laboratory experiments including coordination of equipment acquisition, lab curriculum development, research in multi-functional goals of various apparatuses, laboratory modification, and data collection techniques for experimental courses. Justin has helped in studies involving comet photometry & morphology.  He is performing current analyses of photometry data and morphological studies of comet behavior in future prediction and orbital analysis of such minor planets for better understanding of the primeval periods of the formation of the solar system.  His alias of Professor Comet issues a monthly and bimonthly journal on the collection and study of observational, photometric, photo-spectroscopic, and spectroscopic data of comets.  Also, Justin has been employed as a part-time Education Instructor at Space Center Houston since August 2019 with Astronomy & Space Exploration based activities both face-to-face and online.  Recently he graduated with a certification degree in Data Science from the Institution known as Woz U (developed by co-founder of Apple Computers, Steve Wozniak) through the Southern Careers Institute.  His final project involved the search and analysis of potentially habitable, Earth-like exoplanets and frequency plus commonality native to red-dwarf stars vs other types of stars based on the HR Diagram and the well known Havard Classification System of stars (OBFAGKMLTY).
