TOP SCIENCE STORIES OF 2019

Next meeting: Wednesday January 29 - 6:30pm - 9:00pm Lake Hills Library


Social time 6:30 - Lecture starts at 7:00pm.

2019 was a year filled with astonishing discoveries on Earth and beyond. We inched closer to immortality, recovered and restored our heritage, and science fiction became science fact when we saw the unseeable for the very first time. Come watch and learn what these discoveries mean for all of us. Discussion will follow.
Refreshments provided as well as our traditional book drawing.
Next meeting February 25th at Bellevue Library.

Winter Star Parties
With fall apon us, the skies are still there, but sometimes harder to see with the cloudier weather. There are still occational star parties despite the cooler nights.
We usually join up with other local clubs for gatherings, mainly the Seattle Astronomical Society. They have an extensive calendar of viewing nights, so check out their calendar, grab your scope, binoculars, folding chair, warm fuzzy clothing or sleeping bag. Public and non-members are encouraged to come.

Apollo 11 in Real Time There is a HUGE amount of Apollo 11 web pages, books, documentaries and other goodies these days. One of the most fun sites we have come across lastely is the "Apollo 11 in Real Time".
The site has over 11,000 hours of audio, 2,000 photos, flight paths, transcripts and a lot more. If you want, you can watch the entire mission from start to end...or just scroll to your favorite parts. Take a look!

Apollo 11 - The Movie
Over the next months there will be a flood of Apollo 11 documentaries, books, t-shirts, toys, and all that kind of stuff in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing so long ago. An exciting year to be an Apollo enthusiast for sure. One of the really exciting movies coming out is releasing on March 8th in most of the big theaters. This looks great!

Observe with others remotely NightSkiesNetwork.com is a fun way to observe with other astronomers, chat with them online (or talk directly with a microphone) while watching screenshots of their imaging. Nearly every night there is someone in the country that has a clear sky and is sharing their progess online. It's also useful to get live advice on imaging by sharing your own screen so others can see and comment. The site is exceptionally busy on nights when there is some kind of event - lunar or solar eclipse, Mercury transit, or some other event. We do know that Seattle is often cloudy when something special happens, give this site a try.
