This website tells a little about the San Angelo amateur astronomy Association,but the best way to get to know us is to come and hang out with us.
Today's date is
The current time is Thanks for stopping by - we're glad to have you visit. We have monthly meetings and regular star parties where we get to observe all the wonders in the night sky. We have enough telescopes to share, so even if you don't have one, come on out! Located in San Angelo, Texas, the S.A.A.A.A. was started by Dr. Roy Moon and has been in existence since 1962. We hold our meetings on the first Tuesday of every month at the Angelo State University Planetarium at 7:00 p.m. Our meetings are open to members of the general public who are encouraged to attend in order to learn more about our organization and its functions. We also hold additional public star parties for special astronomical events. Our members make themselves available to schools and other organizations for public star parties. Star parties are observing sessions where members bring privately and club owned telescopes to a dark remote location ( away from city lights ) and view the night skies. In addition to the meetings and star parties, our members enjoy discounts for

"What Is the Cause of the Aurora?" talk by Roger Arnoldy
(This talk took place at the Keene State College Science Center on Wednesday May 8 at 6 PM.)
Natives living at high latitudes believed that the aurora was produced by the burning torches their ancestors carried as they marched in single file toward heaven. If they should chance upon the skull of a walrus in this march they might suddenly get engaged in a soccer game using the skull as a football. As a result, the light of their torches, which they still carried, would tend to fill the entire night sky with light. Other early natives believed it was a discharge of static electricity off the tail of a fox racing through the snow. Not bad! However, with in-situ measurements made aboard rockets and satellites we have a more refined view, but not all of the answers as of yet. This talk will present these data to shed more "light" on the topic.
Roger Arnoldy has been involved with space research using balloons, rockets and satellites to study the aurora for over 35 years. In addition, he has used ground magnetometers to study the changes in the Earth's magnetic field due to solar activity at both poles of the Earth. He served as the Director of the Space Science Center at UNH for 28 years.

Amateur Astronomy
What is amateur astronomy? It's looking up and enjoying the beauty of the night sky. It's making sketches of the craters of the moon. It's learning how to pronounce the names of stars and constellations. It's observing one object night after night to see miniscule changes. There are many aspects that make up amateur astronomy. We've tried to include some material that local amateurs and those wanting to get into astronomy might find useful in this section. Watch for announcements and updates of programs as well as interesting things that might be happening in the sky.

You have found, either on purpose or by chance, my amateur astronomy website. I hope that the content you find here will be of some educational benefit, or that you will at least find some inspiration that may lead you to a passion you knew not existed. When I say passion I don't use the term loosely, for that is what the vast majority of amateur astronomers experience - true passion for our favorite past time. I, like many of you, am a backyard astronomer . We are the dedicated few who prefer to spend our free time looking up at the stars on any given clear night, no matter what the season, even if we are challenged with sub-freezing temperatures, vermin (skunks, opossums, racoons... etc.), obnoxious street lamps (light pollution), mosquitos and spiders, among other "hazards" and "inconveniences" . We tend to spend too much money on our hobby whether it's a new eyepiece, filter, software, magazines and books, or even that "big" telescope we've always wanted.

Amateur Astronomy and Astrophotography
Welcome to my collection of (very) amateur astrophotography. Although I was a professional photographer for many years, I find the techniques of astrophotography a great challenge. My camera equipment consists of Nikon FM2, FM10and Nikkormat EL 35mm Cameras, 35mm, 50mm, 200mm and 500mm lenses, and a Hasselblad 500c with 80mm lens. I use my Vixen SP R150S Newtonian and Meade ETX 90mm Maksutov telescopes mainly from my light polluted back yard in surburban Sydney, Australia. I have recently aquired a Phillips Vesta webcam, and plan on eventually using this for CCD imaging of the brighter celestial objects.

John Dobson: Amateur Astronomy's Revolutionary
posted: 04:29 pm ET

05 May 2000

Strutting around the lawn of the Vedanta monastery in Hollywood, California, John Dobson, cracks the whip on a rag-tag assembly of wannabe astronomers who are grinding their slabs of glass into the shape of a telescope mirror. Grey ponytail wagging, he swaggers around the group. His ratty clothes mask sophistication while he genuinely wants everyone to do his or her best, in his eyes no one is grinding quite right.

"He's my guru." Dobson helps acolyte Durga Pobre shape a lens.
Having taught the craft for over 30 years, Dobson, 84, admits his patience is wearing thin. "No, not like that," he barks at one young boy. "Longer strokes! Longer strokes!" A group of 20 or so have assembled at the spiritual enclave of the Vedanta society a religious order of chaste monks and nuns who believe in a religion inspired by Hinduism to learn the art of building cheap and powerful telescopes. "He's my guru," said Durga Pobre, a retired real-estate saleswoman taking the class. "I love the stars. I love the sky. It's like giving birth to a telescope."
