RASC OK Centre Upcoming Meetings
Kelowna meeting Tues. December 10
The next Kelowna meeting will feature member Frank Stariha who will give the presentation
'Sirius' which the speaker has been pursuing with dogged determination and which he is hoping
will be a howling success. The constellation Canis Major, the Big Dog, is littered with nuggets of
information and interest which the speaker will be dropping tonight. Canis Major is of course the
forever home of Sirius, the brightest star in the heavens, but there are many other aspects to this area
of the sky which have been retrieved for this presentation.
Also on the agenda is a Constellation of the Month (COTM) program by
Olaf Lutz who will address the topic 'Why Not Rent?'.
The meeting will be held at 7:30pm at the Okanagan College Kelowna Campus.
The meeting will be in Lab Room C 368 on the third floor.
Penticton meeting Thurs. December 12
There is an outstanding program planned for the pre-Christmas meeting in Penticton and it is hoped that members from other other meeting groups will join the Penticton circle to hear Sally Kilburg take us on a night's observing session at the 'Historic 60 inch Telescope on Mt. Wilson'. Sally's presentation will include images she took through the big telescope, as well as her experiences
at the 'Nov. 3 Solar Eclipse' she observed from a cruise ship west of Africa.
The 'Cookie Kitty' from the joint meeting came to $20.35 and this will ensure some special Christmas treats
to go with coffee so it is hoped there will be a large turnout.
The meeting will be held at 7.15pm in the regular C O2 meeting room in the Sunoka building
of the Penticton campus of Okanagan College.
Vernon meeting Wed. December 18
The feature presentation at the Dec. 18 Vernon meeting will be Roger Spinks speaking on
