This page is the new location of the WeSeeStars.org website, starting in February 2012. The original WeSeeStars.org website was created and managed by Bill All, who passed away in December 2010 (see our posting here). Bill also supported both the Carolina Skies Astronomy Club and Tar River Astronomy Club on his WeSeeStars.org website. A Time for Science has maintained control of the WeSeeStars.org website and we will continue working with the Carolina Skies Astronomy Club in future activities. Unfortunately in February 2012 we had to start the process of changing hosting for the WeSeeStars.org website and all material on the site was lost. The webmaster of ATFS maintains a backup copy of Bill’s site should you need anything. We are still working with the Carolina Skies Astronomy Club to configure this page.
A couple links to websites that Bill All created outside of WeSeeStars.org:
These links will remain on this page until they are no longer active.
These events (presentations and star parties) are free to attend and open to the public. For those with further interest, there is a Astronomy Club you can join and become a member. Just contact Byron Mumaw. All activities start at the Green Resource Center (Directions) at the designated time, typically around sunset.
January 25 – Starting at 6:30 pm, an indoor presentation will cover the astronomical targets well positioned for viewing in January and February (highlighting Orion and Jupiter). After the presentation, if the sky is clear, we will observe the night sky. Also, after the presentation, Byron Mumaw, President of the CSAC, would like to meet with interested members to discuss presentation topics and activity suggestions for the February through May events.
February 22 – The indoor program starting at 6:30 pm be all about NASA’s MAVEN Mission to Mars. The Mars Atmosphere & Volatile EvolutioN Mission was launched on November 18, 2013. When it arrives at Mars it will orbit the planet for a year observing the climate and atmosphere in preparation for human occupation. After the presentation, if it’s a clear night, we will be setting up for observations.
March 22 – Following the big Turtle Run in the morning the astronomy Club will hold its annual Spring Equinox Star Party at 7:00 pm. Come a little early to watch the sun go down in the west, one of only two time during the year it sets in the west. Please register by March 21.
