Continuing Education Astronomy Pres. Allan Mashburn 435-219-0042 scovastronomy@gmail.com Oct.-May, Third Thu., 7 PM, Activity Center/Navajo www.scovastronomy.com

Thursday, April 18, Dr. Glenn Schneider from the U of A Steward Observatory, will teach us how his team, using spectrometers and various scientific instruments, searches for habitable planets. Habitable planets, circulating distance stars, can be identified as not being too hot or cold and have the necessary chemical make-up to substantially support life. The Kepler telescope ran out of fuel in October and was an important tool in astronomical planet research. Astronomers are looking forward to NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope due to launch in 2021. The question is no longer, is there life beyond Earth? It’s a pretty sure bet there is. The question is, how do we find it? Today we have confirmed 4,000 exoplanets. There are more planets than stars. There are 100 billion stars in the Milky Way alone and at least 25 billion places that life could take hold and our galaxy is one among trillions. Stargazing party Thursday, April 11.

We are reading selections from Great Conversations1, the first in a series of anthologies intended for those who value the lively pleasure of discussing ideas. Hopefully the readings will challenge your assumptions and spark debate. The book can be purchased from Amazon or The Great Books Foundation. Wednesday, April 3, we will read “Self-Reliance” by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Wednesday, April 17, we will read “Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking” by Walt Whitman.

Our May book is Last Bus to Wisdom by Ivan Doig. A third generation Montanan and the author of many critically acclaimed books, Doig died in 2015. Last Bus to Wisdom, his final novel, is a touching and raucous coming of age tale set in the 1950’s based loosely on his own youth.
