May Meeting – Astronomy Unplugged

You arrive at the dark site and realize you forgot to charge the power tank. Now what? Luckily you attended this month’s meeting!

SAS Member Nick Monkman imparts a bit of newfound wisdom on the virtues and pitfalls of all-manual astronomy. ┬áHe’ll discuss how to get oriented under a dark sky using nothing but your knowledge of the celestial sphere and a planisphere. ┬áThis talk is geared towards beginners (after all, the presenter is one!) – but Nick is hoping the more experienced members of the club will jump in and answer questions and share their experiences.
