Activities & Events

  • Our March club meeting was on Saturday the 22nd at the Evergreen branch of the Everett Public Library. The presentation was “The Inner Planets – Mercury and Venus”..
  • Our April club meeting will be on Saturday the 12th at the Evergreen branch of the Everett Public Library. The speaker will be UW astrophysicist Matt McQuinn talking about "How the Milky Way was Formed". We know that the spatial distribution of matter just after the Big Bang was nearly uniform, yet at the present day it is far from uniform. We live in a galaxy that is much denser than most regions in the Universe—and in a very dense place within our galaxy. UW astrophysicist Matt McQuinn will describe the physically intuitive steps by which small matter fluctuations transformed into galaxies, stars, and planets. He'll show computer simulations which do a remarkable job at producing simulated galaxies that share many characteristics with our own Milky Way.

EAS member Ron Tam has offered a flexible opportunity to EAS members to come to his home north of Snohomish for observing on clear weekend evenings and for EAS star parties. Anyone wishing to do so needs to contact him in advance and confirm available dates, and let him know if plans change. “Our place is open for star parties any Saturday except weekends of the Full Moon. People can call to get weather conditions or to confirm that there is a star party. Our phone number is (360) 568-5152. They can e-mail me too (tam1951 at frontier.com) but I don't check my email daily. They can email me for directions if they have never been out here.” Listed below are proposed dates for planned EAS star parties at my *Ron Tam’s place, depending upon the weather, of course. Call Ron about spur-of-the-moment observing.
