Astronomy Bug

November 16, 2010


We usually deal with water jetting and industrial news, but it’s worth noting that many of our members are nuts about space and astronomy. I’m one of those people who stood out under the stars during the coldest winter nights in northern Oklahoma and froze my eyelids to the frosty eyepiece while staring at Jupiter’s red spot and Saturn’s rings. I photographed the moon and Orion’s Nebula and was fascinated by the Ring Nebula in Lyra.

The Amador Astronomical Society’s website is a great one to scratch that old itch. Go look at a few pictures and see what people are doing in the Sierra Nevada’s east of Sacramento, California, where the skies are often clear and the stars don’t hop around like jack rabbits as they do in Texas.
