Thanks to all who attended NEKAAL’s June 28, 2012 General Meeting at the Topeka/Shawnee County Library. I had the honor of presenting a three-part program, and there are a lot of websites you can visit to expand on my all-too-rushed subjects. Rather than watch the attendees trying to scribble in the dark, I thought I would have mercy and tell them the website addresses will be available here.
Don’t just surf–DIVE DEEP. Join a program of your choosing, DO SOME SCIENCE!
Part I: SAS
Society for Astronomical Sciences
Part II: Citizen Science — Astronomy
The Sky is Your Laboratory (book)
AAVSO, the American Association of Variable Star Observers
Center for Backyard Astrophysics
LARI, the Lowell Amateur Research Initiative (9 programs)
Part III: Secret Weapon Websites
Heavens Above (satellites, iridium flares, sky charts)
CalSky (local nightly almanac)
See you at next month’s meeting! [July 26, 7:00 pm, at the Topeka-Shawnee County Public Library]
