viewing schedules, orbital mechanics, and other astronomical items of interest to those near Oklahoma State University.
Other things we plan on doing this semester (not scheduled yet):
We generally try to have observing sessions every "new" (as opposed to "full") moon, meeting at sunset to have a few minutes to talk and set things up in the twilight. (we really need to find a better place to meet). Bring flashlights.
I believe these are the sunset times in Stillwater closest to the "new" moon.
Get CST (+06:00) time of sunset from Current Phase of Moon & times of sunset, then add 1 hour to that time for summertime Daylight Saving (+05:00); during the summertime, the sun is at its highest point at about 1pm Daylight Saving time. See http://rdrop.com/~cary/html/time.html for more info on Daylight Saving Time.
[I want some sort of astronomical calendar here]
The Astronomy Club often views the stars from
Lake McMurtry, near
Stillwater OK which is roughly W097° 04', N36° 07'.

[*]****** Rain Plan:If it is cloudy on a meeting day, ***** Come Anyway ****. We will be showing a movie instead (and, of course, going out to eat afterwards). What do you want to see ?
We're looking for "Good Observing Sites" and "Interesting Places to Take a Road Trip". If you know of any, please let us know. Criteria:
At least one member of the OSU Astronomy Club is (at this time of writing) analyzing signals from
Sky coordinates: 7.6 R.A., 9.4 Dec Recorded on: Mon Mar 8 19:54:45 1999 Source: Arecibo Radio Observatory Base Frequency: 1.418847654 GHz
using analysis software downloaded from http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ .
