Meeting Agenda
Join us on March 21, 2015 at 4:30 p.m. for our quarterly potluck!  If you’ve been to one of our potlucks, you’re probably looking forward to the good food and good company these events have become known for.  Astronomical League liaison Jack Fitzmier will be doing another book review.  Dr. Fitzmier is a dynamic and engaging speaker and always manages to find great reads! Potlucks take a lot of effort to organize, and ours are no different.  In addition to banana pudding and potato salad, we need help with set up and clean up. If you can bring food or offer a few minutes to help with setup or clean up, click here to find out how you can help.

What’s Up
Charlie Elliott Astronomy Observing Supervisor John Towne will be giving a short presentation of what you can expect to see in the sky this month with binoculars and small telescopes as well as the monthly Charlie Elliott Observing Challenge.  At the meeting, remember to ask John for the target list and SkyMap!  The target list and presentation from the last meeting are available for download below.

Sunset Time Alert
While we would love for everyone to stay for the entire meeting, we realize that some folks prefer to leave a bit earlier so as to set up their equipment at the observing field before dark.  If the meeting runs longer than planned, a “Sunset Time Alert” will be announced.

“Observing after the meeting”
All are invited to Jon Wood Astronomy Field immediately after the meeting (weather-permitting). You don’t have to be a member to attend the meeting or join us on Jon Wood Astronomy Field with your telescope (or just your eyeballs).  Note:  The security gate at the entrance to the main road leading up to the observing field closes at 10:00 p.m.  You’ll be able to leave at any time, but you won’t be able to get in after 10:00 p.m.  You will, however, be able to park near the gate and walk a few hundred feet to the observing field after 10:00 p.m.
