UFO at the park.

Setting up at Ciello Grande Park at Roswell, NM. Yes, the Moon was out.



Stan Nelson brought out a great solar scope today at the Roswell Museum's annual Art Block Party.  There were many people who came by to take a look at the sun and all of its flares.  What a beautiful day for the event!  Then, this evening, four members of the Roswell Astronomy Club met at our official Star Party site at the end of Twisted Flower Rd. this evening.  A couple of families joined us at the event as well.  Billy Jack wins the prize (a cookie at the next meeting Smile emoticon) for staying out the longest. 

 I want to remind you of our next Roswell Astronomy Club meeting which is held this Thursday, October 14 at 7:00 at the Roswell Adult Center.  The Boys Scouts will be joining us for this meeting to gain information for their Astronomy Club merit badge.  We should see these boys at the next star party.  The next Moon Gaze will be held on Saturday, October 16 at 5:30 at Cielo Grande.  I hope many of you can participate in that event. 

 I am very excited that so many people are interested in the Roswell Astronomy Club and its many events.  I hope you can come to all of them.  If any of you are interested in becoming an official member of the Roswell Astronomy Club, the membership dues are $10 for the year for the whole family.  If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me or call me at 420-9955.  Check out the official website as well -  Stan Nelson is constantly updating it.  Thank you Stan!
