HAL's member star party will be held on Saturday, Oct. 21st at Alpha Ridge Park at dusk. Garry Ingle hosts.
Celestial Searchers meets on Monday, October 23rd from 7-8pm at the Glenwood Library. If it's clear, we'll be spending some time outdoors; so, dress warmly. This meeting continues the exploration of the solar system and shares tips for observing the upcoming Leonids and Geminids meteor showers. You're never behind at Celestial Searchers; so, if you can't make it to every meeting, still come when you can. (Celestial Searchers is an astronomy club for all kids K-6.)
There are just three HAL public star parties left in 2017. The next one at dusk on Saturday, Oct. 28th in Alpha Ridge Park is a double whammy. It is an offical STEM Pre-event and it's also International Observe the Moon Day. In addition to views of the Moon in the observatory and through HAL members scopes set up in the parking lot, there will be solar system demonstration and meteorite display tables set up on the sidewalk. Bob Savoy is star party host and solar system man.
