September Meeting, Saturday September 9 at 7 PM
Our September program will feature Dr. Tony Hall, the chairperson of UALR Physics and Astronomy Department. He will be speaking on Gamma Ray Astonomy. Gamma-rays are created by celestial events such as supernova explosions, destruction of positrons, creation of black holes, and even the decay of radioactive material (gamma decay) in space.
In addition Bruce McMath will present the constellation of the month, Cygnus.
We will be grilling out again at 6:00. Burger and fixings will be $5.00, please register on the CAAS website to have a burger reserved for you.
Weather permitting we will view the moonless cosmos following the presentations.
