  • Date: November 18th, 2015
  • Time: 7:00 PM

The next Southern Oregon Skywatchers meeting will be held Wed Nov 18th at 7PM, at North Medford High School.

We have a special guest this month - Dr. Panos Photinos, Chair of the Department of Physics and Engineering at Southern Oregon University. Professor Photinos will discuss his recent book, “Visual Astronomy: a guide to understanding the Night Sky”. It is very concise and easy to read and yet informative. Dr. Photinos will briefly discuss the focus of each chapter of the book and an outline of the more technical topics of the appendices and resources. He will also discuss some student/general public misconceptions from his long teaching experience.

Dr. Photinos will bring some copies to sell at a discounted price of $17 at the meeting and have a book signing. Plan to arrive early - we hope to see you there!

We ask our members for $20.00 in dues each year to help us pay for our operating expenses (e.g., liability insurance) which make our activities possible. We cannot operate without membership support!

If your membership hasn't been paid this year, and you would like to renew it, please bring in your dues to the next star party or club meeting.

If you aren't a member and would like to support the club by becoming a member, please fill out the membership application form and bring it and $20.00 to the next star party or club meeting. Click here to learn more about the benefits of being an S.O.S. member!
