Our regular meeting schedule resumes in September

Join us for a potluck dinner meeting and stargazing on Saturday, Sept. 19th

The next regular meeting of the Charlie Elliott Chapter will be held on September 19, 2015 with a potluck supper and general elections. The potluck meeting will be held at 5:30 pm at the Campbell Aquatic Building on Murder Creek Church Road. A food sign-up sheet will be posted after Labor Day.

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, binos, or just bring yourself – we enjoy sharing the night sky with our guests!

September 19th is also “International Observe the Moon Night”! We will have nice views of the moon as it approaches 1st quarter. The moon sets at 11:38 PM, but be sure to arrive before 10 PM, which is when the Elliott Trail gate locks to new entry.
