February President’s Message

I want to thank everybody for coming out to our January meeting and taking the time to fill out our survey.  If you were unable to make it to the meeting please be sure to print out your survey (you can download it from our website) and send it in as soon as possible, or bring it with you to our next meeting.  We will compile all the data to make sure that we have presentations on topics that interest you and raffle prizes that you want.  This is a great opportunity to make your voice heard.

We currently have two outreach events: one at St. Angela Merici School on March 8th and the other is for the Cub Scouts at Jean Lafitte National Park & Preserve on February 16th. Please make an effort to be a part of these outreach events if you can.  For more information, contact Brian LeCompte or check the forum on our website.

Our next meeting will be held February 22nd in the UNO Science Building, room 1001.  Jack Huerkamp will be giving a presentation about the Astronomical League observing programs and two comets that will be making an appearance in 2013, PanSTARRS in March and ISON in November.

Remember to keep up with our club website for events and helpful information.  If you have a question about observing or equipment, please don’t hesitate to post it on our forum.  We have many knowledgeable members who would love to help you out. You can also like us on Facebook for easy access to club information and current astronomy news.  I hope to see you at our next club meeting!
