About the General Meeting Presentation

The Burke-Baker Planetarium closed on December 18, 2015 and reopened on March 11, 2016. Come hear about all the improvements we made to make our theater among the best in the world.

James Wooten is the Planetarium Astronomer at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. He teaches students every school morning in the planetarium and also answers astronomy questions from the public.

At the Novice Session

Debbie Moran is our Novice Chair. This month she brings us Observing Jupiter. You’ve been watching all year long, that dazzling orb tracking the constellation Leo high in the sky.

And a special welcome to our newest members. We’ve heard you and have some informative, accessible talks planned this month. No fooling!
