New- Star Chart For Cayman

A new feature as of June 2015 has been added - look at the bottom of this web page and there is a new Star Chart exclusively for Grand Cayman

The next meeting of the Astronomical Society is on Tuesday 18th August 7:30 PM 2015

The next meeting of the Cayman Islands  Astronomical Society is on

Tuesday 18th August 7:30 PM - to be held at St Pedro's Castle.

All are welcome. Non members are asked to park outside and walk through. 
In the event of the sky being more than 50 percent cloudy the meeting will be canceled. If in doubt please phone (not text) at 7:15PM  
Karen will be looking for people to join the Society! Remember the society can only exist if people support it.
Before then of course we will pass through the Perseid Meteor shower- the moon is well out of the way this year
The peak is likely to be  in the early hours of the 12th,13th and 14th  in the dark hours before dawn. 
You might see 50 meteors per hour but do remember that this meteor shower - which always gets so much media attention -  favours North Hemisphere observers - of which we are only just in the North! . The radiant or the point where the meteors appear to come from is in the constellation of Perseus - and at our latitudes it really is quite late (or early depending on your point of view) to see the constellation high in the sky . But don't let that put you off and please tell me if you see any
 Hoping for clear skies!
