8pm Friday 2nd September we have Perry Vlahos speaking who will reveal what there is to see in the September sky.
David Bowie must have known something when he sang, “...there’s a starman, waiting in the sky...”, and this Friday night Perry Vlahos will point out the Klingon ‘Bird of Prey’ spacecraft in which the starman is waiting! It’s a constellation hidden in the starry sky, but once it’s pointed out, you’ll have no trouble finding it for yourself. But what about the ‘starman’ I hear you ask? Well...it does appear that we have recently received a signal originating from deep space, so he may be there after all. Perry will also give us the skinny on this, plus showing us the most interesting things to look for in the September sky, including a ‘coathanger’ for your winter jackets as we head into spring and warmer weather.
If you have a telescope and would like to know how to use it, or alternatively, would like to show it off to us, please bring it along!
