Our first star party of the new semester, featuring a NASA update, observing if weather permits, and perhaps some music. Refreshments and door prizes! Be "worlds ahead and be there!"
More than 35 people showed up for the passage of New Horizons through the Pluto system.
The color Combination winner for the Observational Astronomy lab this year are Jennifer Medina and Andres Medina. They took raw CCD frames and calibration frames taken from the SARA South telescope in Chile in three different frequency bands. These images were processed and combined to make a color image of the galaxy. Congratulations Jennifer and Andres! Great work.
Dr. Webb was nominated by the astronomy club for advisor of the year for 2014-2015. He wants the thank the astronomy club not only for nominating him, but for running such a great club that others think he is responsible for it! Actually, he just stays out of the way and lets the students go with it! "So, thanks students for making me look good!" Dr. Webb.
