As is tradition, our members have first access to the monthly Orbit via our Forum. Orbit becomes available to the general public later in the month, and it is now available for January.
This month’s great issue includes a number of great outreach events that were conducted by our members, along with some interesting articles about doing professional photometry with a consumer camera, a tribute to the WISP program from the 1950s, the MinXSS CubeSat’s mission and the story of Orthodox Christmas’ date.
