Well, star party season has started with our usual visits. Monday evening, October 28 saw us at the Linwood Middle School in North Brunswick showing Ms. McCarthy’s astronomy class a few sky objects. Unfortunately, there was a thin layer of clouds that prevented us from seeing a lot of objects but we were able to see Venus, the double double in Lyra, and a couple of globular clusters. Thanks to members Jeff Bernardis, Mary and Pat Hayes, David Zahler, Victor Davis and yours truly for volunteering!
Saturday evening, November 2 will see Gene Ramsey and some others visit South Hunterdon High School and do some stargazing with the school’s astronomy class.
Friday evening, November 15th will see a number of volunteers visiting Newell Elementary School in Allentown, NJ. This evening is part of their “Science-Live” night. The visit is one of our regular star parties and is very well attended! Let’s hope for clear skies and lots of volunteers!
