SAS Astronomical Chronicle For June 2011

Friday, June 24th, 2011

Greetings fellow astrophile!

The June 2011 newsletter has been posted in advance of the next Public Viewing Session that occurs over the long 4th of July weekend. We roll the roof back during the Summer to find Sagittarius and Scorpius right at our eyepiece. As Saturn disappears earlier in the evening, the center of the Milky Way and a great wealth of intragalactic Messier Objects receive our nighttime focus. The long 4th of July weekend also gives all an excuse to spend a few extra hours outside to use all of the New Moon weekend.

Check the website for more information on Friday at 5:00 p.m. We hope you can join us!

Greetings fellow astrophile!

The SAS Astronomical Chronicle for May 2011 is now posted (a bit close to the edge of May due to the April/May double-viewing overlap). Note that next week is our next Public Viewing session and we are hosting a lecture at White Branch Library on June 4 at 3:00 p.m. Stay tuned to the website next Friday and Saturday for weather updates.
