While winter in SE Texas can bring cold weather, it can be ideal for astronomy. Nights are much longer. This makes it possible to get several hours of observing in at the HAS dark site and getting safely back home very possible. And when the temperature is lower, the sky many times will be dryer and hence more transparent.

Novice Chairperson Chris Morrisette will lead us on a tour of the winter night sky. He will give us tips on preparing for winter weather conditions. In addition, Chris will show us how to find our way around the beauty of the winter Milky Way and introduce us to some of the Not to be Missed celestial objects we should have on our observing lists!

Our Speaker: Chris Morrisette is HAS Novice Chairperson and an active member of the Houston Astronomical Society, North Houston Astronomy Club, and the Fort Bend Astronomy Clubs.  He is also a member of the University of Texas Astronomy Department Board of Visitors.  On clear Saturday nights,  you may find him volunteering at the George Observatory engaging with visitor and sharing his love of the night with them, while totally having fun operating the telescopes there, or you may find him at the HAS dark site gaining experience with astrophotography.
