"When beggars die, there are no comets seen;
The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes."

Getting the solar scope ready

Getting the solar scope ready

John Miksits getting the scope just right.  Roger West assisting.  The scope needs to be checked.  The filter has to be tested everytime to assure safety.  Direct viewing of the sun must be done only with properly working equipment. 

Thanks to Mary Lou West for this photo.

Astro Dinner

We discussed having a dinner.  It's really important to get together on this now if we are going to make it happen in November as suggested at our last meeting on July 8th by Mary Lou.  We need a head count.  Mark E. was to contact a restaurant or two and Mike W was to send out requests for door prizes.  Now your part is telling us yes or no.  If we can't make November, how about in February like in really old times.  Correct me if I'm wrong about the old time dates.  All I can remember was being snowed out several years.
