Burnham's Celestial Handbook

The next meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday January 16 at Newport Way Library at 14250 SE Newport Way.

Tom Hager will speak about some of Robert Burnham's best characters from the Celestial Handbook. He will be going north to take us exploring through the circumpolar constellations. First Tom will cover Camelopardalis, then move on to Cassiopeia with a possibility of including Cepheus if there is time. Burnham's coverage of Cassiopeia has a lengthy discussion of the phenomena of supernovae, initiated by his description of Tycho's Star, which is an observer's challenge.

The book drawing will be for - "Chasing the Sun" by Richard Cohen.
The following meeting will be February 26th at Lake Hills Library.

Seattle Astronomy Blog:
Greg Scheiderer writes a very informative blog site about local Astronomy events and happenings in the Seattle area. He is also an EAS member. He can almost always be found at the Museum of Flight events and lectures taking notes and asking questions. So be sure to add his blog to your Astronomy reading list. Like most blog sites, you can even set up an RSS feed to keep up on the latest entries.

He also has started a calender on the site, and he'll have a lot of good info about just about everything astronomy related on that. All local clubs, museums, and star parties.

Don't forget our blog site! Remember, EAS does have a blog site with a lot of the latest space, astronomy, some aviation, and whatever else looks good to share. President Tom Gwilym writes the blog and usually has a new entry or two every week, depending on what is going on that looks interesting. The blog is very easy to update, so there is more new goodies to read there than on the main EAS site (this one you are looking at) so make sure to check that out now and then or you can even set up an RSS feed when something new is posted.
