The Astronomical Society of Kansas City’s General Meeting on June 25, 2016, will feature David Kuehn, Interim Chair and Universary Professor in the Department of Physics at Pittsburg State University, Pittsburg, Kan. He earned a B.S. in Physics from Pittsburg State and a Ph.D. in Astronomy from New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, N.M.

His presentation is titled “Acousto-Optic Tunable Filter Imaging of Jupiter in Support of Juno Spacecraft.” His talk will center on observations of Jupiter undertaken at Apache Point Observatory, using the New Mexico State University Acousto-Optic Imaging Camera March 28 and 29, 2016. These observations were a test of a new computer, hardware and software interface. Further observations are scheduled during the Juno mission. This data will be used for numerical modelling efforts.

Join us at 7:00 P.M. in room 111 of Royall Hall at UMKC for this interesting speaker.

*MONTHLY MEET-AND-GREET

We've added an informal meet-and-greet from 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Board members and club members will be available to answer questions, chat about news of the day and in general get to know faces in the light, rather than voices in the dark. Treats will be available for the meet-and-greet before meetings and after meetings. Also after general meetings and weather permitting, you are invited to the roof of Royall Hall to look through some of the instruments inhabiting the Warkoczewski Observatory.

 

ASTRO 101

Astro 101 will be in room 104 of Royall Hall at 6:00 P.M. The topic for June is to be decided.
