Upcoming EventsNov22Sat201410:00 am Byron Bergert Imaging Group @ Patrick Henry LibraryByron Bergert Imaging Group @ Patrick Henry LibraryNov 22 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pmNOVAC’s Byron Bergert Imaging Group continues to defy expectations by, well, continuing! Our Pre-Thanksgiving Processing Party will be held Saturday November 22 from 10am to 2pm at the Patrick Henry Library in Vienna. We’ll be talking about imaging and processing images, so bring your laptop, your data, or just your questions. And in a radical departure from precedent (meaning the first two meetings), we’ll have an actual presentation: our very own Robert Whisler will give a presentation on guiding for astrophotography. So participate in the making of history and join us. Don’t be intimidated – none of us know what we’re doing either! Please note the change in time and location. The Patrick Henry Library is on Maple Avenue in Vienna, about a mile east of Nutley Street and two miles west of Tysons Corner. The meeting room is on the right as you come in the door. Recommendation: bring an extension cord and a power strip, if you can. There are only so many outlets, and we don’t want to all huddle against the walls! I hope to see you there.4:30 pm Sky Meadows Public Night @ Sky Meadows State ParkSky Meadows Public Night @ Sky Meadows State ParkNov 22 @ 4:30 pm – Nov 22 @ 7:30 pmPublic Night @ Sky Meadows in conjunction with SI – Check http://www.novac.com/wp/observing/sky-meadows/ for site details and directions.

It spans from December 7th through the 17th, but will peak overnight on the 13th with up to 120 sightings per hour. The meteors will appear multicolored, which gives an added bonus to the already spectacular show. Though the moon will wash out some of the meteors, they should be bright and plentiful enough to still be very visible. These meteors will appear to originate from the Gemini constellation.12:00 pm C.M. Crockett Public Night @ C.M. Crockett ParkC.M. Crockett Public Night @ C.M.
