Chapel Hill Astronomical and Observational Society

President’s Message

Hello CHAOS and guests,

We had a good turn out for our ice cream social. It was awesome seeing everyone in person and not on a screen. A couple of telescopes popped out and some of the other ice cream guests enjoyed looking at Jupiter and Saturn, as well as the Moon.

We are just a few days away from the 2021 Fall Staunton River Star Party. It’s exciting that we have over 100 signed up for the event. The order for clear skies has been put in and we are watching intently. The park staff are excited for our return. There are a few changes that will be temporary while we are getting back into the swing of things.

There will be a meeting on October 12th. Until then, I hope to see you at the Star Party.

Clear Skies!

Jayme Hanzak
