San Juan Stargazers’ Oct. 27 meeting to feature information on Venus


By Joan Mieritz | San Juan Stargazers

Our monthly meeting in October will be on Thursday, Oct. 27, starting with a social time of coffee, tea and other treats at 6 p.m., and the program is from 7 to 8:30 p.m. sharp. 

Our study topic will be Venus, which is called the morning or evening star, but it is actually a veiled greenhouse planet. This interesting lesson was prepared by Ann Marie and Rex Kemp, including a written section with questions and a video lecture. 

2023 calendars available

We have available the 2023 Deep Space Mysteries Calendars. The photos for each month are fabulous. Seriously studying the information is like taking an introduction to astronomy class. The calendars are $15. 

Next meeting Dec. 22

We will not be meeting in November due to Thanksgiving, but there will be a meeting on Dec. 22 that will include yummy birthday cake. 

It might be a last star party of 2022 or a regular meeting. It will depend on the weather. We will be having as many star parties this winter as possible. We might be scheduling a star party for every week, knowing that clouds will cut down on the actual number of star parties that happen.
