• Next Meeting

    The next Sky Watchers meeting is:
    Saturday, December 2nd – From 7 to 9:30 PM
    At the Coal Creek Canyon Community Hall, 31528 Highway 72, Golden, CO 80403

    Join us for our next meeting that will feature a presentation by David Elmore, Instrument Scientist from the National Solar Observatory in Boulder. David will bring you the latest information they have gathered from the Citizen Science Total Solar Eclipse project entitled the Continental America Telescopic Eclipse (CATE) Experiment. This project deployed 68 identical telescopes along the August 21st total solar eclipse path from coast to coast to measure the Sun’s corona. Many high school and university students and astronomy groups participated in this project too. We will also have brief updates on international space exploration missions and astronomy news at our meeting. After the talks, we’ll set up our telescopes and check out some celestial objects, weather permitting. We will also have a small holiday gift corner with astronomy and space-related gifts to purchase from some of our members.

Sky Charts

This star chart is special; designed just for Coal Creek Canyon. We collect night sky events that folks in Coal Creek Canyon, Colorado would see, such as lunar eclipses, solar eclipses, and lunar phases. A section on planets gives readers rise and setting times at around the middle of the month. We also collect information about International Space Station (ISS) passes, Hubble passes, and Iridium flares where sun geometry reflecting off of solar panels results in dazzling brightening of the satellite passing overhead.
