Welcome to the Wormhole - Ames Area Amature Astronomers window on the web

The Ames Area Amateur Astronomers is a dynamic organization with activities held year-round. Each month at our meeting we present a guest speaker, with exciting lectures about space and astronomy.

   August 16, 2014 Meeting
In the words of John Holdren, President Obama's science adviser, "is  already well beyond dangerous and is careening toward completely unmanageable."  Furthermore, the destabilization of climate is now believed to be more or less permanent in human timescales. Geophysicist David Archer puts it this way: the climate impacts of releasing fossil fuel CO2 into the atmosphere will last longer than Stonehenge.  Longer than time capsules, longer than nuclear waste, far longer than the age of human civilization so far.  Join us for a lively discussion, as Sam Wormley who recently taught a class on this controversial topic for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) brings us up to speed on the latest thinking on this issue.

                                                   2014 IOWA STAR PARTY

Come and join us for the 2014 Iowa Star Party! We will be going to Coon Rapids where we have the darkest skies in Iowa to view all manner of astronomical objects. Some of us will be there to do observing, some to do photography, some enjoy the nature. Come and join us. Thursday night we will be starting to gather, Friday night will be the night for the public and the rest of the weekend is for us. For more information see our webpage at www.amesastronomers.com/iowastarparty.
