Grandview 2 - Sept. 22-24

Grandview Milky Way

This weekend is the club's second trip to Grandview in the Inyo Mountains. We will be officially camping out Friday through Sunday with some members going up there on Thursday.  We have been assigned the Nelson site at the Cedar Flats campground.  This is our reservation campground on highway 168 right before the turnoff that takes you to the public Grandview campground.  Bishop temps are forecast to be in the upper 60's to low 70's with nights in the upper 30's; so it's going to be cold. 

Meeting September 9 - The Eclipse

Totality - Megan Huynh

Joing us for our September meeting where we will have a Show and Tell presentation from members that experienced the 2017 Great American Eclipse.  We'll also be discussing upcoming outreaches and Grandview 2 star party.

Cassini Says Goodbye

On September 15th, the Cassini spacecraft will have its final mission. It will dive into the planet Saturn, gathering information and sending it back to Earth for as long as possible. As it dives, it will burn up in the atmosphere, much like a meteor. Cassini’s original mission was supposed to last four years, but it has now been orbiting Saturn for more than 13 years!   [PDF]
