From the Director

Ludovico D’Angelo, Director

At our last meeting, we had a lengthy discussion of observatory possibilities for Jenny Jump and Washington Crossing State Park. This discussion was an advancement of previous discussions concerning a possible donation to the club of a dome and equipment to make an “automated“ observatory. The end result was the formation of a committee to explore and possibly implement the construction of a new observatory in addition to the one at Washington Crossing. Thank you to those members who volunteered to participate in this venture.

There are still problems with access to our observatory at Washington Crossing after hurricane Sandy. As it seems that some gates are broken and we need to resolve several issues before we can get back into the park. We hope to have an update at our next meeting.

Our next board meeting will be on January 15th, 2013 at 7 P.M.  Anyone who would like to attend, please contact me.

Our next regular meeting will be Tuesday, January 8th at 8 PM in Peyton Hall.
