Upcoming Meeting – October 14th, 2017 – SOLAR ECLIPSE STORIES!

Society Member Mark Peter did this image while he was at Grand Island, Nebraska for the 2017 eclipse.
The October 14th CAS meeting will be a group effort, featuring presentations of members’ solar eclipse stories.  Anyone who experienced the 2017 solar eclipse (partial or total), or attempted to experience it, is encouraged to contribute!  We will follow the eclipse path, from the west coast to the east, through many different states as members give their personal accounts of the Great American Solar Eclipse. Coffee and Donuts will be provided as well!

Upcoming Meeting – September 9th, 2017 – Eclipse Stories, Solar and Night Time Observing at Perkins!

Society Member Brad Hoehne took this star trail picture during the July meeting at Perkins Observatory.
This weekend, CAS will be doing an informal observing gathering of members and guests at Perkins Observatory.  Solar observing starts at 6pm until meeting start time at 8pm.  We will have a short membership meeting from 8 to 9pm where some members will share some stories of their eclipse experience.  Afterwards, around 9pm, we will be doing night observing.
If you are a new member, and need some telescope assistance or tune-up, please bring your equipment and we can help you get it working.
Instead of donuts, CAS will be ordering pizza around 7pm!
We hope to see you there!!
