Listening for Ripples in Space Time

The next meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. Monday February 26 at Lake Hills Library at the corner of 156th SE and Lake Hills Boulevard.

Ron Hobbs, an Ambassador to the Solar System for NASA, will present a tour of LIGO HANFORD Observatory and first observation results. A trap was laid in hopes of catching gravitational waves from a neutron star collision. Validation of the results unlocked secrets of the cosmos. This new way to probe cosmic mysteries won the top news story award of the year 2017. The event ruled out hundreds of theories that were cluttering up in-boxes everywhere. And now, just last month a new LIGO event was detected.

The book drawing will be for - "Nightwatch" by Terrance Dickinson.
The following meeting will be March 19th 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.
