Scenes and links from the January meeting

The “Join the Crowd” talk at the January meeting was all about active participation crowd-sourced citizen science. Here are the links to the projects that were mentioned:

Somewhat surprisingly, Firefox and Chrome claim that there is a certificate problem with the the Navy link, and it may require you to manually accept an exception to access it.

Even though the skies were not very clear, the group also enjoyed taking a look at the new Sommers-Bausch Observatory telescopes, and we did manage a few brief glimpses of the Orion Nebula.
