Possible meteor storm May 30-31

There are several predictions that there may be a new tau Herculid meteor shower overnight Monday May 31 that may reach "storm" levels and may be the best in decades or even a generation.

Unfortunately, it seems that the event is likely to be a "hit or miss" situation and will either be a very impressive meteor shower, or basically nothing at all, and if it does occur it may last only a fairly short time.

Here is a link to some info:

Solar observing for the Springfield Wonders of Wildlife (WOW) school

The Springfield Astronomical Society will be hosting a Solar observing event for the Springfield Wonders of Wildlife (WOW) school at Springfield Lake Park (Northwoods Pavilion area) from 12:30PM-1:30PM on Saturday May 7. If you have a scope with Solar filter and would like to help it would be appreciated! It would probably be a good idea to arrive around Noon to get set up.

We will have a Hydrogen Alpha scope at this event as well which is another good reason to come and help. If you have not observed the Sun through a HA scope it is very interesting and you can see more detail than with a conventional white light filter.

Astronomy Zoom Presentation October 20, 2020

David Jarkins Springfield Astronomical Society member and NASA Solar System Ambassador will be presenting "Our Neighbors Next Door- Alien Life on Europa" via Zoom with the Christian County Library on October 20, 2020.

When most people think of the search for life on another planet, they imagine some kind of intelligent humanoid creature. While creatures like that may exist, it is far more likely that we will find other forms of life more prevalent. The presentation examines what we believe are the requirements for a habitable world, where we have searched, and where we may find life close to home.

Photometry is the measurement of light. Professional and amateur astronomers use photometry to understand the characteristics of astronomical bodies. This presentation introduces the concept of photometry, how it is used in astronomy, some of the discoveries made, and how an amateur astronomy can make photometric measurements.

This is a high-level, non-technical introduction to the topic. It starts with a description of photometry, provides a short history including the creation of the AAVSO and how professional astronomers use the procedure with an overview on the Kepler mission. The presentation continues with techniques for visual and CCD photometry, and concludes with photometry by amateur astronomers to perform citizen science.

Look for a string of planets across the sky this month. From west to east, look for Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars. Mars is at its closest point this month, and is easily spotted in the southeast sky after sunset.

The Perseid meteor shower will peak on the mornings of the 12th and 13th. The Moon is at new phase and won't interfere with the shower.

Expect to see at least one meteor per minute.

The next meeting of the Springfield Astronomical Society will be Tuesday August 28th at 7:00PM at The Library Center. Please make plans to attend.

SERVICE MESSAGE


Website down for a bit, and a few updates
It's been a while since I chimed in here but I wanted to make everyone aware there have been some website outages in the past few months and this past Monday it was a big one and it finally bit the dust.

The website has been restored and I'm in the middle of systematically going through everything to make sure it's "all" working good. If you encounter an error somewhere using the website please contact me -
