June Meeting & Observing

Meeting Details


Join us June 1st, 6:30PM, in the Campbell Aquatics Building at Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center for our quarterly potluck!  If you have been to one of our potlucks, you’re probably looking forward to the good food and good company these events have become known for.  Potlucks are great when everyone chips in, and ours are no different.  In addition to all of the good things like banana pudding, barbecue, and mac & cheese, we need help with setup and clean up.  Please take a moment to sign up for something and help out.

If you haven’t found it already, check out our Facebook Page. You’ll find a welcoming group of people sharing ideas and tips as well as organizing ad-hoc observing and imaging sessions on Jon Wood Astronomy Field.

Perspective & All of the Above

Observing Coordinator David Whalen will be on hand to discuss what you can see and image in the night sky.  His presentation will cover observing from both a visual and a contemplative perspective. If you’ve been to one of our meetings, you know that David is a dynamic and engaging speaker and always delivers a lot of great information with plenty of laughs!  Be sure to ask for the monthly target list and SkyMap.

Observing After the Meeting

All are invited to Jon Wood Astronomy Field immediately after the meeting (weather-permitting). As always, the event is free and open to the public.

Tech Talks

If you have an idea for a 15-30 minute discussion or presentation that you would like to see or would like to give, contact the Charlie Elliott Program Coordinator, Kevin Snedden.

Charlie Elliott Astronomy Membership Form
Pay dues with PayPal

All Charlie Elliott Astronomy events are free and open to the public and you don’t have to be a member to attend our meetings or join us on Jon Wood Astronomy Field.  However, we would encourage you to consider a yearly paid membership for less than the cost of a couple of pizzas.  Your membership dues allow us to continue our science outreach programs in area schools and youth organizations, merit badge programs with area Scout Troops, and allow us to maintain the facilities on Jon Wood Astronomy Field.  To become a member, you can fill out our membership form or contact an officer.

March is membership renewal month. If you are renewing your membership, no form is necessary.
