Welcome Back!. Our next meeting will be the third Wednesday of September. 


September 20th. 7:00 PM
North Medford Planetarium

 

Our September Meeting is looking to be a real smashing hit.  We have several speakers set to talk on projects from over the summer.

The North Medford Balloon team will lead off with our first look at how the mission went.  After 2 years of planning the Ascent team will let us know how their work and planning paid off.  Included in this talk is the Eclipse MegaMovie with over 46k photographs of the eclipse stitched together to form a movie.

Collin White as a project mentor will do an overview of the eclipse project.

Sean Curry will then talk about the Summer Projects at Pine Mountain.  High Schoolers from all over Oregon are partnered up with Astronomers and they spend a few nights doing projects.  In the past they have managed to determine orbits of Asteroids, catch exoplanet transits, and lots of other fun projects.
