Activities for February, 2018

Club Observing ( at Sunset )
Saturday, February 10, 2018 ( 6:06 pm )


Monthly Meeting at Lowell Observatory
Saturday, February 24, 2018
Dr. Tyler Robinson, NAU


Title: “Weird Worlds and the Hunt for Life Beyond Earth”

Astronomers now know of thousands of worlds orbiting other stars in our Galaxy. These so-called “exoplanets” are surprisingly diverse, spanning giant planets with super-heated atmospheres to small rocky worlds with rock vapor in their air. These findings are leading up to the discovery we all wait for – another planet like our own!


CAS Monthly Meetings and Astronomical Programs are held the Saturday closest to the Full Moon at the Mars Hill Campus of Lowell Observatory, Hendricks Center for Planetary Studies Auditorium (6:45 pm - 8:00 pm., unless otherwise noted) followed by refreshments, and informal discussion. Meetings are open free to the public.

Activities for March, 2018

Club Observing ( at Sunset )
Saturday, March 10, 2018 ( 6:32 pm )


Monthly Meeting at Lowell Observatory
Saturday, March 31 2018
Dr. Diedra Hunter, Lowell Observatory


Title: “Extended Stellar Disks of Dwarf Irregular Galaxies””

Outer disks of dwarf irregular galaxies are extreme environments at the lowest observable limit for star formation. Yet the stars that are present often have near perfect exponential profiles, suggesting an ability to organize into a standard disk which no current models can explain. Dr. Hunter will discuss ultra-deep imaging of the outer disks of dwarf irregular galaxies and what it reveals about the nature and mysteries of the extreme outer parts of tiny galaxies.
