UB-SEDS has several exciting events coming up!
On Friday, July 1st, we have been invited to Camp Keenan on the shores of Lake Ontario to conduct an astronomy program. We will be bringing our club telescope as well as several members’ telescopes. Carpools are available, and several members are planning to stay the night. If you want to come up for just the night, that can be arranged too. There is no cost, but please RSVP to Salman Iqbal (Salman.Iqbal [AT] ubseds [DOT] org) if you’d like to attend. This event, of course, is weather permitting.
On Sunday, 3/27/11, UB-SEDS held a solar observing event outside the Student Union. We set up our Celestron C10-NGT with a solar filter, and were able to observe over 10 sunspots on a sunny Buffalo afternoon. Below are some images we took of the sun.
On Saturday, 3/26/11, UB Rocketry held a launch event in Elba NY. Every rocket launched successfully, including several high-powered launches. Below is a video taken from an onboard camera on a rocket, which traveled to about 2500 feet. More pictures and video to follow shortly.
