On Friday February 9th at 7pm, we will have Rahul I. Patel, Ph.D. to give us a presentation.  Dr. Patel is a postdoctoral researcher in astrophysics at Caltech/IPAC.  He works on identifying solar systems that might harbor planets by searching for and characterizing the dust around other stars. Dr. Patel will take us on a quick tour through the history of exoplanet discoveries, detection techniques, what we can learn from the current discoveries, and what the astrophysics community has planned for the next decade.

On Saturday February 10th at 6pm we have a Prime Desert Moon Walk at the Prime Desert Woodland Preserve in Lancaster.  Weather permitting.  Free and open to the public.  Telescope viewing before and after the walk.
