The November meeting of the Santa Fe Stargazers began at 7:00 PM MDT on November 18, 2020 with 11 members in attendance. The evenings featured speaker was ‘Gazer Jim Kraemer, who spoke on the neutrino astronomy from Antarctica: “IceCube Neutrino Observatory: The Cubic Kilometer Detector at the South Pole Amundsen-Scott Station.” You can download a copy of Jim’s keynote presentation (or a pdf version of the same) from our web site. You can also view a recording of the presentation here.
Following Jim’s presentation the business meeting focused recent member observing and included a general and . . . let’s say . . . , wide-ranging discussion.
The Santa Fe Stargazer’s next meeting will be held on January 20, 2021: there will be no December meeting. The January meeting will feature ‘Gazer Albert Schutz, who will speak on lunar observing.
Please remember that the Club’s web site is available for posting observing reports. Any observer who wishes to take advantage of this opportunity should contact Sam, who will create a web site account and forward an excellent set of instructions on how to create observing report posts, drafted by Robert Powers. Additionally, time will be reserved at future meetings for any ‘Gazer to share a oral report of any recent observing opportunities they’ve taken advantage of.
There being no other business the meeting ended at 9:10 PM MDT.
Stay smart, stay safe, and see you all next year!
