Our Current Club Events Calendar
Our Next Monthly Meeting:
Date: November 4th, 2014
In this talk, Dr. Trouille will discuss the factors that cause a galaxy, like our Milky Way Galaxy, to stop forming new stars. Specifically, what role do central, massive black holes and galaxy collisions play in galaxy evolution? A major thread through the talk will be Galaxy Zoo Quench (http://quench.galaxyzoo.org/). Through Quench, professionals are supporting the public in experiencing the entire arc of the research process-from galaxy classification to publishing the results in a peer-reviewed journal. She will share what we've learned in this first experiment, plans for future projects, and how you can participate.
The public is welcome to attend, free of charge.
Our Next Astronomy Fundamentals Program:
Date: Tuesday, November 18th, 2014
Everyone Talks About the Weather...but what can you do about it? If you are an amateur astronomer, you watch it, and often watch in helpless despair these days. What is the best way to know what the weather will be for observing tonight, or tomorrow? This is a vital question for planning observing at home, for our public events, and (even more importantly) for your outdoor grilling. So: what are the best ways to predict clouds and clear stable skies? Which weather forecast will give you the best picture of what the sky will be like over that particular site, during the hours you plan to be there?
The public is welcome to attend, free of charge.of charge.
