Program for the March 7, 2014, OAS meeting
OAS Constellation Program: Your guide to the Stars.
By Kim Moss-Allen
No, we won't go looking for Warren Buffett's house or any other such place. We'll get a handle on the constellations, the star patterns, that are visible from our vantage point here in the Omaha area.
Hi! My name is Kim Moss-Allen and I'm from Albuquerque, NM. I don't ever remember a time of not being fascinated by the night sky. I remember seeing great dark skies visiting family in rural Indiana, near Noblesville and hearing stories about those stars from my grandmother, Beulah Brown (Mrs. Dwight) Moss. Fast forward about 30 years and I found the OAS with my husband Dudley and I found that I was not alone in wanting to better understand the universe in which we live. A great start to that is getting familiar with the constellations, the road maps to the stars.
