“Amateur Astronomy Inside and Out – Winter Skies For CNY Eyes” At Liverpool Public Library, October 11th

Greetings, fellow astrophiles!

I’m very pleased to report an upcoming Liverpool Public Library lecture by CNYO’s own Tyler Beagle (with his CNYO and SAS hats on to boot).

Presented by Tyler Beagle, member of
CNY Observers and the Syracuse Astronomical Society

Date: 11 October 2018, 6:30 – 7:30 PM
Event Link: http://calendar.lpl.org/eventsignup.asp?ID=17308

There are those who celebrate the arrival of the autumnal equinox more than the vernal equinox! Many amateur astronomers anxiously await the cold, crisp, and long nights of winter. Some of the very best astronomical sights one can observe from CNY are awash in daytime light during the spring and summer, leaving observers to wait for Earth to make it one half-revolution around the Sun again before preparing their hats and gloves for nights outside. Modern technology has made amateur astronomy a 24-hour hobby for those with an internet connection, meaning even the bitter cold need not keep you from seeing – or studying – the Milky Way and beyond. This talk will be divided into nighttime winter observing and a survey of citizen astronomy projects.
