The Kuiper Belt
by John McLaren

Our next meeting will be Wednesday, September 12, 7:00pm at Newport Way Library, 14250 SE Newport Way
Welcome back from another summer of smoke filled and obscurred Seattle summer skies. We can hope the crisp and cooling fall skies can bring some good viewing! This month John McLaren, a Solar System Ambassador for NASA-JPL programs who will speak from 7 to 9 p.m. about the amazing Kuiper Belt. Right after Pluto was found, the existence of countless more objects was suspected to reside far out in our system.
There will be the usual book drawing, and refreshments.

Do to a complication of the library scheduling, we have the room an hour earlier at 6pm, so feel free to show up early if you want and socialize a bit before the meeting.

Our next meeting will be October 15th at Lake Hills Library so mark your calendar.

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.
