Dry Creek

Just thought I would let you all know that Greg and I made an impromptu trip to Dry Creek last night to get a little more eyepiece time in.  Greg is working on a Messier program, and I am embarking on the Herschel 400 list (am I crazy or what?).  We made progress though, and enjoyed the crickets!… Read the rest

Recent Astro Events

Recently TAA club members got together for our monthly visit to the Pena Planetarium.   Though we did not take in the show, we did treat those who attended to after-show views of the planets (Saturn I believe) and a few brighter deep sky objects.  Everyone seemed to have a pretty good time and enjoyed looking through the scopes.  … Read the rest

Venus Transit Report

TAA members waiting for Transit.

Tom Login made arrangements with the Lindcove Research Center to use their property for our observing location for this  event. The location was perfect. We were on a small hill overlooking the valley free from trees and buildings.… Read the rest
