The CAAA meets at the Abrams Planetarium on the first Wednesday of the month. Meetings start at 7:30 p.m. A live star talk precedes the meeting at 7:00 p.m. All are welcome.

Annual dues are $12, which includes all club activities, a monthly meetings notice, the Sky Calendar, the quarterly publication of the Astronomical League, The Reflector.

Upcoming meetings:

We have two things on tap for the Jan. 4 program: show-and-tell of any gear, gadgets or software you got this winter, and John French conducting another of his great "sky scavenger hunt" programs under the dome. As always, please let me know if you have ideas or suggestions for upcoming programs. Let's make sure the eclipse is a discussion topic at each meeting over the next few meetings.
Please email your program suggestions to me at

Quadrantid meteors The Quadrantid meteors peak on January 3rd this shower will be the first meteor shower in a while that will be moon free during best viewing hours. The shower is expected to produce approximately 120 meteors per hour at peak. The radiant is in northern Bootes, but the name is from the past now-defunct constellation Quadrans Muralis. Dress heavily for heavenly viewing during these long cold nights. Kurt
