NENAC is a group of amateur astronomers eager to share their interest in astronomy with all who want to know more about the night sky.  Some of us lead the evening discussions.  Some of us provide our telescopes to look at the month’s night sky.  Requested programs are encouraged.  For more information about NENAC and future evening programs, please call Pastor Gary Fugman at 349-1953.

      Being able to observe the transit of Venus across the Sun was literally a once in a lifetime opportunity for me. Three sunspots were also visible which added to the breathtaking view and made for an awe-inspiring experience. Many thanks to Pastor Fugman for sharing his knowledge, expertise and telescope because before NENAC I wasn’t aware that a transit of Venus even occurred!

    Hi, my name is Dave Shiel with East Valley Astronomy club in Arizona. I meant Gary Fugman while he was visiting family in Arizona. He attended one of our meetings and will be going to our dark site on 12/28 to look at the Arizona night sky with several of our club members. The main reason I am writing is to encourage your club to have outreach shows for the schools in your area. I know that your club is not as large as ours (130 members) but we support over 40 school star parties each school year with the same people volunteering every time. All you need is 3 or 4 telescopes to bring the universe to those who may never have a chance to experience it as we do. If you want more info regarding how we do this service for our schools you can contact me at drshiel@yahoo.com and also visit our website at http://www.eastvalleyastronomy.org. Have a blessed Christmas and may the new year be great.
