Close Conjunctions Make Us Wonder

The Mars-Jupiter conjunction has been getting my attention the last several mornings. I tried taking pictures this morning, but they're not as good these. Enjoy!

Astronomy in the Park / Monthly Meeting - RESCHEDULED

Due to snow and icy roads our meeting this week is rescheduled for next Thursday, same time, same location.

Obviously, the weather won't be good for Astronomy in the Park this week, but we also have our membership meeting on Thursday.

Our monthly meeting is the first Thursday of every month, except July, which is the second Thursday. January's meeting is this Thursday, the 4th, at 7pm at Atlantic Aviation, 6060 S Aviation Dr., North Charleston, SC, but this may be a better representation of where our meeting is located.

We will have a presentation on buying your first telescope. Also, some members usually meet at 6pm at Big Billy's Burger Joint, so join us if you can!

Moon Occults Aldeberan

I was reminded that the moon was supposed to occult Aldebaran last night, so I managed to get a picture of it before the moon passed in front of the star.

It seems the last Astronomy in the Park of the year has to be canceled due to weather, but don't worry. We will have plenty more in 2018, as well as other events at our dark sky site, Mullet Hall.

Happy New Year!
