The Prairie Astronomy Club was founded in Lincoln, NE in 1961 as a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging the study of Astronomy and related subjects for the benefit of its members and the general public. No prior knowledge of astronomy is required to be a member. If you simply enjoy looking up at the night sky, we welcome you to become a part of the Prairie Astronomy Club’s amazing 52 years of Astronomy! Contact us to learn more.
Our guest speaker this month will be Michael Sibbernsen from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln. Michael will be presenting “The Sky is Falling,” and will share with us his wonderful collection of meteorites and impactites. During the program, you will learn about the three main types of meteorites, and even get a chance to hold one of these artifacts from the formation of our solar system. Michael will also give us updates on Branched Oak Observatory and the Eclipse-Nebraska Consortium.
The meeting will start at 7:30pm on August 25th and the program will start around 8pm. Meetings are at Hyde Observatory and are open to the public.
