The Huachuca Astronomy Club


The Huachuca Astronomy Club will hold their next meeting  on February 6 at 7 PM in Room 900 of the Cochise College Library building.  Guest speaker Dr. Alex Woronow will deliver a talk titled "Amateur Astro-Spectroscopy" .  This presentation will renew our understanding of light’s interaction with its environment, look at the range of the equipment and software that amateurs use in their spectrographic observations, and survey some of the recent campaigns amateurs have undertaken in support of professional spectrographic studies.  Dr. Woronow has degrees in astronomy and geology and was a Research fellow at University of Arizona’s Lunar & Planetary Lab and a Professor of Geosciences at the University of Houston.   He is currently building an observatory near Silver City, NM to study super novae and nebulae.  The meeting is free and open to the public.
