    ·        Saturday Jan 7th - EAS January General Meeting
    'LIGO and the Era of Multimessenger Astronomy' - Dr. Joey Key, UW Bothell

    Laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory (LIGO) made the first ever incident detection of gravitational waves on September 14, 2015, inaugurating gravitational wave astronomy as a new tool to explore the hidden universe of black holes and other exotic objects.
    With the second observing run of the Advanced LIGO detectors, alerts are coordinated with over 60 astronomy collaborations to search for an elusive 'multimessenger' source, a signal that could be detected both in gravitational waves and electromagnetic radiation.

    Sat 1/7/2017 3 PM - 4:45 PM
    Evergreen Branch Library, Everett, WA

    All EAS meetings are open to the public.

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 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, such as when we have a run of clear days but no scheduled event...
