The Lesser Constellations of Summer by Andy Edelen
The northern summer skies are dominated by six major constellations: Cygnus, Lyra, Aquila, Ophiuchus, Scorpius, and Sagittarius. But what about the constellations that fill in the gaps? What about Vulpecula or Sagitta; are they ignored because of their small sizes, or because there is little of interest in them? What about Delphinus, and whose coffin is it? And who put Antinous and Tigris in there? Join us at the Eugene Science Center for the answers to these and other questions about the “lesser” constellations of the season and how to observe the fascinating objects within them!

The meeting is at 7:00 on Thursday, June 20th at the Eugene Science Center planetarium, 2300 Leo Harris Parkway in Eugene (behind Autzen Stadium). Note that the west entrance to Leo Harris Parkway is now closed, so you have to go around to the east end. Also note that the gated entrance at the stop light leads to the stadium, not the Science Center. You want to go beyond that to the actual entrance to Leo Harris Parkway.
