At The General Meetings


At The General Meetings ...

At the July 7 meeting Bob Jardine (top picture on the left) talked about some of the observation programs developed by the Astronomical League. It would be a surprise if no one tried one of these programs. If you do try it, let us know how it went.

On June 2, Dr. Peter Nugent (second and third on the left) talked to us about supernova 2011fe. The talk was aimed for a general audience but didn’t pull any punches. The interesting thing about this supernova is that it is easily spotted by amateur astronomers and it is located in M101, a favorite target for astrophotographers.
