November 14, 2018, Robert Ted Bell, the University of Calgary Representative bringing us up to date on what is happening in the skies above us.
Robert is in the Astrophysics Master’s program in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Calgary researching the structure of neutron stars. Throughout his explorations of astronomy, he has observed the transit of exo-planets, examined the after-effects of supernovae, and examined star systems thousands of times brighter than our Sun.
Currently, Robert is involved in public outreach and education at the Rothney Astrophysical Observatory, which helps to connect the public with the science of astronomy and astrophysics. We will follow-up on Saturday with our Road Trip to the Rothney Observatory. Details below.
Saturday – November 17, 2018, Rothney Observatory Road Trip. Doors open at 8:00 Open House We will see Leonids Shower, Jupiter, Uranus, Waxing Crescent Moon. The Observatory lets us in to look through the huge Telescope. Dress very warm. It is cold in November and to see the sky you must be exposed to the elements. Plan to stay late! The sky gets clearer and it gets darker. And it gets colder, DRESS WARM! Bring a small flashlight, no lights are there. Further information and directions, please visit: www.ucalgary.ca/rao
Celebrate dark skies with us and our partners in Conserving the Wilderness of the Dark Sky. In the sky – Ursa Major points the way to the Polaris, but the light pollution from Calgary dims the view. Try and find the north star in the winter sky.
Open House – Gates open at 8:00 pm and the event runs until 11:00pm Admission $30 per carload. (all proceeds go towards Rothney Astrophysical Observatory educational programs) The RAO is located on hwy 22, east side of the hwy, 2.4 km south of the hwy 22 and hwy 22X interchange.

December 12, 2018, Annual Seasonal Pot Luck Dinner, Social & Business meeting.
This will probably be our last opportunity to have a social gathering with fellow dowsers and like-minded people. Twice a year we have traditionally had a potluck and chat night, which gave us a time to talk and share our experiences. These evenings have not been well attended and we were not able to cover our costs. If this Dec 12 gathering does not have a minimum of 20 people the potluck gatherings will be canceled. Would appreciate your feedback and comments on this, but most of all your attendance is extremely important. You do not have to be a member to attend. If you choose not to bring a sharing dish, there will be an additional $5.00 cost added to your entry fee. Please mark this evening in your calendars.
