Cristo Sanchez caught a pic of this comet December 22. Noted Astronomer Colin Humphreys has some credible evidence that the Star of Bethlehem could have been the great comet of -5BC. This is a very beautiful shot and a reminder of the reason for the season. ASET members are like the wise men, we look for the star in the east.

Great news! Got my images of Myself & The Milky Way and Bode's Galaxy (M81) published in Issue #41 of All About Space Magazine, making it my third time in the magazine! Can't say how grateful I am for this opportunity!

Fellow member (Cristo Sanchez - 16 yrs) sent this in to us. His work was recognized in All About Space (link) and he told us he was inspired by coming to the star parties put on by the club.

There will be a public viewing session on (weather permitting).
These viewing sessions are intended for visitors of all ages and are free of charge. Since these are outdoor events, poor weather conditions may force a cancellation. Check this site again a 2 hours before the tour to make sure that the tour has not been canceled due to poor weather. SFA SPS students will operate the telescopes and show visitors stars, clusters, nebulae, double stars, and perhaps a planet. Here are driving directions to the SFA Observatory. For more updates, you can like the SFA Observatory on Facebook.
There are also planetarium shows on the main SFA campus nights at . Admission for planetarium shows is $2/person.
Today is the first day of fall – also known as the Autumnal Equinox. Let’s hope for cooler weather …
