ORION -- Oak Ridge Isochronous Observation Network ORIONastronomy@groups.ioORIONastronomy is the open-membership news group of Oak Ridge Isochronous Observation Network (ORION). Visit our web home at http://www.ORIONinc.org/ or https://www.orionastronomy.wordpress.com ORION supports science research and teaching at Tamke-Allan Observatory (TAO) and amateur astronomy in East Tennessee. We facilitate the study and enjoyment of astronomy and we strive for an accurate understanding and appreciation of astronomy and related physical sciences in our community.
ORION works to share the wonders of the cosmos and the culture of science to people from all walks of life. There is no charge for membership in our news/discussion group, where members maintain a friendly, cooperative spirit.
Some ORION members volunteer as hosts at TAO. Volunteers at TAO use their knowledge and equipment to help others experience the joys of discovery and to enhance learning about the night sky and it's astronomical objects. They are volunteer hosts of the observatory, and consider themselves ambassadors on the subject of Astronomy. They recognize that only if we make Astronomy a positive and enlightening experience will people support TAO and develop respect for maintaining a scientific and educational perspective.
ORION currently hosts Zoom meetings online, by email invitation to members and friends. In-person meetings are POSTPONED during times of social distancing but are usually held in the Goff Building Auditorium of the Oak Ridge Campus, Roane State Community College on the third Wednesday of each month, and Public Stargazes, POSTPONED during times of social distancing, but usually on first and third Saturdays at TAO. ORIONastronomy is open to anyone who enjoys astronomy.
