“Four Great Astronomy Programs for Your Computer”

By Gary Fugman

How can I use my computer to help me find objects and keep track of everything I’ve seen? What would it look like to fly to and orbit Saturn?  How about flying to and orbiting the Pleiades Star Cluster? What’s out there to help me find my way across the surface of the moon?  Can my computer do any “real science” that might lead to a new discovery? Come to Northeast Nebraska Astronomy Club (NENAC) May 6 at 9pm at the Lyons Library and Saturday, May 7 at 9pm at the Decatur Sears Center to check out some of these great computer applications. Then at 10pm, weather permitting, Friday we will go to Cory and Tracie Martins’ south of Lyons and Saturday to Fugman Observatory on the south side of Decatur to observe the night sky through large astronomical telescopes. You are invited to bring your binoculars or telescope as well.

For more information on this and future NENAC presentations, please call Pastor Gary Fugman at 349-1953, and Keep Looking Up!
