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. 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.
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 24 – January’s program will focus on Mars and the news about methane surges that have been detected by the Mars Science Laboratory. Come at 6:30 pm on the indoor program at A Time for Science Nature and Science Learning Center. Planetarium trip to Mars (and exploration of surface features) by Charles Goodman, PCC physics and astronomy. Watch the progress of landing techniques from the rovers, to the Phoenix, to Curiosity, the Mars Science Laboratory. Short talk on possible methane sources on Mars by Dr. Bob Christian, ECU biology. Weather permitting the outdoor program will feature the winter circle of stars and constellations as well as a peak at Comet Lovejoy if we are lucky. Remember there are no clouds in the planetarium, so come and enjoy. Update: See the Mars Presentation News posting here for information about this event.
