Astronomers of Humboldt
The Astronomers of Humboldt ordinarily schedule meetings on the weekend nearest the new moon. Meetings may consist of an observing session or an indoor presentation.
- Saturday February 25. Regular Monthly Meeting. NOTE LOCATION CHANGE!!! Because of the weather forecast which includes the possibility of snow showers for Kneeland this weekend, we are moving the meeting from Kneeland to Ken's house in Arcata. We will get together at 7 pm [email Ken for directions]. We will have some brief announcements from Grace and a National Geographic video about Mars expeditions. Also if there should be a hole in the clouds Ken will set up his new (to him) Dobsonian on the back deck for a "first light (under new ownership)" celebration.
