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 September 3. Star-Hopping in Ophiuchus. We will meet at Kneeland Airport. The constellation Ophiuchus, a.k.a. the Serpent Bearer, will be conspicuous in the southwest. Mark Mueller will give a lesson on Star-Hopping to some interesting deep-sky objects. If you go, arrive in time to set up equipment before dark. But before leaving home, check both the up-to-date weather forecast and the Kneeland Airport Sky Cam. And check back here for any last-minute changes in plans.
Meeting dates and special events for the rest of 2016 (check back for details):
- Saturday October 1. Regular Monthly Meeting.
- Saturday October 29. Regular Monthly Meeting.
- Saturday November 26. Regular monthly meeting.
- Saturday December 3. Public Observing at Arts Alive.
