Click on the Sun/Moon symbol in the “Looks like” column to see what the eclipse looks like during the different phases of the event.
This eclipse is in progress during moonset, so only parts of the eclipse are visible in San Antonio.
SAAA Monthly Meeting
We’re sad to report that there will be no July meeting of the SAAA.
“Why?” you are asking. Well let me tell you. The San Antonio Astronomical Association is hosting the 2014 Astronomical League Convention at the San Antonio Airport Hilton, July 10th through 12th as part of our 40th anniversary celebration. That’s right, the SAAA formed in July 1974 and held its first meeting in August 1974.
Come on out to ALCon 2014 San Antonio and attend the myriad of lectures on various topics of interest to the amateur and professional astronomer or just to meet astronomers from across the country. Feel free to join our astronomical conventioneers at the Riverwalk Friday evening.
No worries folks, we’ll be back in August with a great speaker.
