These are the notes from the most recent meeting, which contain our most recent plans and announcements.
October 20, 2014
They're a bit late, but here they are in all of their glory -- your meeting minutes:
We intend to host observation night at our regular time this Wednesday from 7:30pm – 9:30pm. There have been noises made about looking at the Andromeda galaxy, but we’ll see what happens (literally).
The date for our fall trip to Yerkes has not yet been finalized, but we are tentatively looking at the weekend of 7th week, so mark your calendars!
This week the lovely Carina gave us a talk on the space race “not as you know it, but with all the weird explody parts.” Those interested in hearing more about Nazi rocket scientists and gun-toting soviet astronauts you can get in touch with Carina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On a related note, here's a link to the alternative presidential speech by Nixon that Carina mentioned. Enjoy: http://watergate.info/1969/07/20/an-undelivered-nixon-speech.html

Thursday, October 23rd : Partial solar eclipse – For those of you who don’t know, solar eclipses are pretty freaking cool, so try to look up from your books for a while on Thursday evening before the sun sets and ruminate for a bit about the complexity of the universe, etc. For more information about the eclipse, check out the link below. http://shadowandsubstance.com/
That's all for now, folks. let me know if you have any questions about things mentioned in past meetings, or upcoming events. I'll see you all next Monday.
