“Experience the Universe at Charlie Elliott”
Our next meeting and public stargazing
The next meeting of the Charlie Elliott Chapter will be held on Saturday, May 7th, 2016 at 6:30 pm (room TBA). Tim Geib will present a talk on remote observing and imaging (“Stargazing from your Couch”). We will also hold our chapter board elections. The proposed slate of officers for 2016-2017 is Tim Geib (Director), David Whalen (Observing Chair), and Brian Tucker (Secretary). Other nominations may be taken from the floor.
At sunset we will head over to Jon Wood Astronomy Field (33.468865, -83.735319) for a night of observing, weather permitting. All are welcome. Bring your scopes, binoculars, or just bring yourself – we enjoy sharing the night sky with our guests! Be sure to arrive before 10 pm, as that is when the security gate on Elliott Trail locks to new entry.
