San Juan Stargazers to hear about Venus at Oct. 27 meeting

By Joan Mieritz | San Juan Stargazers

Our monthly meeting in October will be on the regular day, Thursday, Oct. 27, starting with a social time of coffee, tea and other treats at 6 p.m. and the program being from 7 to 8:30 p.m. sharp. 

Our study topic will be Venus, the morning or evening star which is also called the veiled greenhouse planet. The interesting lesson was prepared by Ann Marie and Rex Kemp, including a written part and video lecture. 

We have available, and selling fast, our 2023 Deep Space Mysteries Calendar. The photos for each month are fabulous. Seriously studying the information is like taking an introduction to astronomy class. The calendars are $15. 

We will not be meeting in November due to our Thanksgiving festivities.

If you would like to join the San Juan Stargazers, you will also receive Reflector Magazine, which is the publication of the National Astronomical League of which you automatically become a member. To join both groups and get an excellent astronomy magazine, annual membership is only $25/ family. This year, there is a fabulous special gift for new and renewing members. It will help you become the astronomer you have always dreamed of being. 

You will love it. You can join the club at any of our events or on our website. 

 The San Juan Stargazers Club is part of the Astronomical League — celebrating its 75th year of service — which includes over 300 clubs from all over the U.S. including over 20,000 members. Our local group also has a website, www.sanjuanstargazers.org. Check it out for more information and beautiful Hubble and Webb photos. We welcome everyone to learn more about our amazing universe. We hope to see you soon.
