Next meeting: July 27 with CCAS President Joseph Carro on Astronomy

CCAS President Joseph Carro will be guest our speaker for our July CCAS meeting (we do not have a meeting in August). He will cover fundamentals about Astronomy, a brief review of measurement methods, how the big bang was discovered, a new look at the Milky Way, and the rings of Saturn. 

Joseph has been a very active member of our club since 2004. His avocation is the study of binary stars, and he has more than 20 publications on that subject. He has made presentations across our county to many groups, and has conducted training sessions on the use of telescopes, and Astronomy in general.

Our meetings start at 7pm at the United Methodist Church. We’re at the Wesley Building. The address for the UMC is 1515 Fredericks Ave, San Luis Obispo.

General Information on our Meetings and Public Talks:

Our meetings include time for show-and-tell, telescope setup questions, special introductory content for newcomers, socializing time, and in-depth astronomy content for our more experienced members… in short, something for everyone!

Visitors are welcome and encouraged to attend. You do not need to be a CCAS member to attend meetings. Folks are welcome to bring astronomy equipment, books and photos to share with the group. We like to assist in answering questions or help with equipment operation techniques when needed, BUT FIRST, please contact the CCAS to discuss this, as meetings are sometimes already booked solid with topics, or, there may not be anyone at the meeting who is knowledgeable of the item you need help with.

If you have questions about bringing something to a meeting, or wish to ask specific technical questions, or about meetings in general, just let us know.
