February Meeting Recap

Thanks to all who came to the meeting tonight!  We had a great time.  Toby showed us his homemade binocular tripod,  truly beautiful work.  Roger really explained the Graphical Ephemeris  in a way that was easy to understand.  John talked about the Astronomical League’s Messier Project and Cliff talked about our 2 constellations of the month.  We ended with a lively discussion about neutrinos, hosted by Cliff.  Thanks to Dr. Nilsen for his input on the physics of neutrinos!  Although I personally really had to concentrate to follow the conversation, I found it to be very interesting indeed!    With all that, we were unable to watch the next segment of Dr. Filippenko’s lecture, so that will be shown in March.  Hope to see all of you there!
