Chapel Hill Astronomical and Observational Society

President’s Message

Welcome to February everyone. Are you ready for the Statewide Star Party??? If you’re not and are not sure what it’s all about, Then the club meeting this month is one you don’t want to miss. You really don’t want to miss this one. We are meeting on Friday, February 11th at the Morehead Planetarium along with the Raleigh Astronomy Club. It’s a great time to meet like minded amateur astronomers and to learn what the Statewide Star Party is all about.

The Statewide Star Party has been going on for close to a decade now. It’s an opportunity to open the minds of children and adults to the beauty of the skies above. To have them expand their thoughts from the electronic world that influences so many people, to the wonders that are around them in the world that they live.

Our meeting host is the Morehead Planetarium, and lead by Amy Sayle. Amy will show us what they have planned and the tools that will be provided. She will also tell us which star party hosts will need our help. This event has always been a fun time for those who have helped. Come on out and see how you can participate this year.

Clear Skies,

Jayme Hanzak
