October Meeting

Because of the upcoming holiday weekend, our first meeting of the 2016/2017 season will be on the third Saturday.

Time: Saturday, October 15, 7 p.m.

Place: Avonport, 475 Bluff Road

Speaker: Melody Hamilton

Topic: Searching the Deep Sky Gems and Challenges

Summary:
When one gazes up into a dark, moonless sky with unaided eyes, we see what ancient astronomers were familiar with….the Milky Way, fainter stars and a few “fuzzy” objects. With the use of our modern telescopes, amateur astronomers are able to distinguish one type of faint fuzzy from another. This is the challenge in the Deep Sky programs: finding, identifying, observing and recording these faint fuzzies.
