With a history going back to 1951 (geologic by the standards of most clubs in CNY), the club is noteworthy both for its longevity and its frequent discussion of astronomy-significant news and events in its newsletters. Just a cursory look through the 2014 archive of their Crack ‘n Cab newsletter shows some topics of great relevance to the CNY astronomy community, including:

* Dutch Rock turns out to be Rare Meteorite (June 2014)

* Mars Atmosphere May Have Been Trapped Inside Planet’s Rocks (May 2014)

* Oldest Crystal Found on Earth (March 2014)

* Earth’s Core Spins In Two Different Directions! (February 2014)

A google map of the SRC Arena is below.

I plan on attending Saturday in the early afternoon just to see what kinds of meteor collections (and collectors) might be present here in CNY. If you plan on attending, let CNYO know!
