OK, as it stands I have no idea how the Stargazers meeting last night went, I was in Greenwood. Don't forget, I'm leaving this page up so you can have the links anytime you want all in one place.

Beautiful night for stargazing though. Orion is in the SouthEast and about 10:00 the sky was very clear, which made for good seeing. Sirius was just below Orion, and the Pleides not too far above Taurus the bull, with it's eye Aldebaron shining.

Remember, the Stonebelt Stargazers have their monthly meeting on the thrid Monday each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Morrow Observatory classroom. Visitors are always welcome! Special events are held throughout the year, such as Grissom Days at Spring Mill State Park.

Make sure you read ALL of this material before you start working....

Did you see the Geminid Meteors last night or this morning? If you did, write down what you saw and give it to Mr. Bailey

They aren't finished yet, either. You can still view them - tonight, look East, or tomorrow morning look west. Use your star charts to find Gemini - easily seen by finding the stars Castor and Pollux.

In 10 minutes this morning I counted 22, with 3 being small fireballs.

Do the Planetarium Activity on pages 615, and 658 of your textbook and turn it in today if you finish. There is a distinct possibility of not finishing this lab, as the last activity is fairly lengthy.

Note: extra credit...
The Stonebelt Stargazers have their next monthly meeting on Monday Dec. 18 at 6:30 p.m. in the Morrow Observatory classroom. Visitors are always welcome!Meetings are held the third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m., with special events held throughout the year, such as Grissom Days at Spring Mill State Park.

There are actually activities going on this Saturday at Spring Mill for Wright Brothers Day. Contact Mike Pritchett for details (Contact info is on the Stargazers web page)

At the last Stargazer meeting, Morrow Observatory was opened, and there were two other telescopes and one large set of binoculars taking advantage of the relatively clear sky.
