Pictures on Facebook

If you haven't already "like"ed us on Facebook - take a look and see what you're missing. We'll have our content reposted there, so you never have to be out of the loop. Also, when we get pictures to share we'll have them available online (see the Mineola Naturefest).

Hope to see you at future events :) and on Facebook.

See you tonight :)

We’ll be doing the star party in Mineola tonight – please try to make it out there, but if you can’t we’ll probably have some pictures to post afterwards.

Wish us clear skies

New Contact Form

For anyone interested in participating, requesting a star party or just asking questions about the group - please use our new contact page. You'll have to prove you aren't a robot using the image verification at the bottom (I don't like those either, but the spam-bots are always looking for easy meat).

Sky and telescope Great Red Spot transit table

Sky and Telescope has a table to help spot transits of the Great Red Spot for June through December. Make sure you correct the time for UTC (currently central time is UTC minus 5 hours and will change back to minus 6 hours at the time change).

As someone who has never seen it, I'll definitely be on the lookout.
