One of the benefits of membership in the Austin Astronomical Society is access to our monthly newsletter, Sidereal Times, which contains the latest information about Society activities and articles written by members. The newsletter is now online at this location.
The March 2014 issue of Sidereal Times is now available for download. (896 KB)
In the March issue, you’ll find information on our upcoming March meeting featuring Chris Sneden of the Astronomy Department at UT and his upcoming presentation on The Extraordinary Lives of Globular Star Clusters. Erika Rix will be giving a hands-on Practical Astronomy workshop where participants can make their own solargraph pin-hole cameras prior to the meeting.
You'll read about club events, upcoming outreach reports and opportunities, news on the upcoming Messier Marathon event, AL awards, and events including the Austin Alt Az Star Gaze and Eldorado Star Party. And of course our regulars - March Observing Targets, Fred Hoyle: The Big Bang – or Not? by Alan Carruth, NASA's Space Place: A Two-Toned Wonder from the Saturnian Outskirts By Dr. Ethan Siegel, and the member's gallery.
