From the Director

by Ludovico D’Angelo, Director AAAP

All things move along as they always do. Time is such a fleeting thing, and the days are passing quickly by. It seems only yesterday that we had our last meeting, and it’s been three weeks already. The sky has been beautiful during the daylight. I hope all the solar observers have been taking advantage. The evenings are a hit and miss. Now that it’s colder, when the sky is clear, it’s very clear.

I remind everyone that we rescheduled StarQuest to November 18-20. This is a great opportunity for beginners, amateurs and professionals to gather and observe the day and night sky. Hope Center is a relaxing, comfortable, learning environment. Bob Vanderbei will give a talk on astrophotography on Saturday, so I hope to see some of you there.

We had a great lecture given by our own club member Dr. Freeman Dyson on October 11th. He packed the house; there was no room to sit in Peyton Hall. There will be audio of his talk available if you were not there on the website.

This next month brings another club member, Ken Kremer, to talk about the last NASA shuttle mission and the future of NASA. Ken always gives a great talk, and I hope to have just as full of an auditorium for him on November 8th.

See you all on the 8th at 8:00 p.m. in Peyton Hall!
