Online Weather Resources You May Not Know About
by Austen Onek

Astronomy is, of necessity, mostly an outdoor activity and, therefore, weather dependent! Austen Onek, meteorologist at WREG (Channel 3), will inform us of lots of available weather information sites that the “Big Boys” use to predict weather, including long-range forecast models. After Austen’s presentation, we should be able to make better plans for our observing sessions, both individually and as a group.

AND

LIGHT POLLUTION by Rebecca Love

“Less than 100 years ago, everyone could look up and see a spectacular starry night sky. Now, millions of children across the globe will never experience the Milky Way where they live. The increased and widespread use of artificial light at night is not only impairing our view of the universe, it is adversely affecting our environment, our safety, our energy consumption, and our health.”

Rebecca will outline the adverse effects of light pollution and what can be done to reduce the amount of light pollution in our environment
