Thanks to all that came out last evening to our first stargaze of 2013. We had a good number of folks in attendence and a great variety of scopes to look through. The skies were very clear and steady which made for great views of Jupiter, M42, M46, the owl cluster, double cluster, and many more too numerous to mention. Thanks to all that shared their scopes and knoledge of the skies with others. BTW..we should be trying for a comet Pan-Starrs viewing session sometime this coming week weather permitting. Please check our events portal on the website for updates on when. Again, thanks to all for a great kickoff to our first full year of viewing the wonders of the heavens.

I'm so dissappointed that I didn't know about this event.  I don't remember getting any notification.  How can I make sure I'm aware of things like this?

I just found the email.  It was sent on the 7th.  I must have gotten sidetracked before I was able to put it on my calendar.  I'll pay more attention next time.  I'm glad everyone had a good time.  I enjoyed looking at the pictures.

Fred,

I couldn't find a way to attach a image in a message to you other than here.  Attached is the article about the Jicamarca Radio Obervatory in the local Lima Peru paper, The Republic.  As I warned you it is in spanish.  The title is "THE MAN WHO DEFENDS JICAMARCA".  Our daughter Jennifer is the young woman in photo #3.  I can't find the readout graphs she sent me so I will ask he to resend.

My regards,

Steve Smith

Finally, a morning where I could view Saturday, Mars and Jupiter. It was a little cold, using my 8in Zhumell Dobson telescope, but I was able to see Jupiter and its 4 largest moons, Mars, Saturn and its largest moon titan. I was really refreshing to view the stars again after so many cloudy days.
The last time I viewed was a couple of weeks ago where I was able to see the same planets in the morning plus a 5th moon with Jupiter and then in the evening I was able to see the Orion Nebula for the first time on my own. I wish I could have more days like that.
I hope others are able to view the stars too.

I hope others had an opportunatey to see Jupiter and Saturn Sunday night.

I was able to see both for a short time in my backyard. Hopefully Tuesday night will be clear and

we can all meet at Hisey Park for some more viewing.

We were able to watch the conjunction on 12/21 in perfect conditions with my old 4" Meade equatorial reflector in Belleville, Illinois where we were visiting my daughter and grandsons.  We had a few others gather with social distancing and masks  to look through the eyepiece in turns while my oldest grandson (almost 30) worked the controls.  Hopefully we inspired some budding astronomers.  My grandson and I had recovered from confirmed Covid a few weeks ago so we didn't think we personally had to worry about catching it or passing it on in close quarters.

Dave, wow, so you and your grandson got through COVID.  I'm glad.  What were the symptoms for both of you?  I'm curious.

Hi Jeff, 

My grandson and my Covid infections were like bad sinus infections for 3 days, including lots of coughing and mild fevers.   For about a week after that, a lot of fatigue.  My 29 year old grandson was fully recovered in two weeks while it took me almost three weeks.  My wife had it a lot worse, with severe headaches, coughing which she still has not fully gotten rid of after almost after six weeks, and extreme fatigue which is finally getting better.  Since we all had symptoms and positive tests within days of eating at the Springboro Warped Wing Brewery, we believe we got it there since they closed down the day after we were there due to at least one employee testing Covid positive.    We're looking forward to a healthy New Year!  

Happy New Year, 

Dave

Sound miserable Dave.  I'm glad you all are on the mend.  I hope for a speedy recovery for your wife.  I understand some of the effects can linger for a bit. 

 

Yes, 2020, get you all behind me!

 

Jeff
