Collegiate Peaks Forum Series event this coming Thursday, March 16th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at the Buena Vista Community Center, 715 E. Main St., Buena Vista.
The topic is: Revealing Jupiter’s Interior NASA’s Juno Mission: What’s Inside the Giant Planet by Dr. Fran Bagenal. Dr. Bagenal has participated in many of NASA’s planetary exploration missions, including Voyager 1 and 2, Galileo, Deep Space 1, New Horizons and Juno. The Juno Mission began orbiting over Jupiter’s poles on July 14, 2016, Dr. Bagenal will share NASA’s findings and more. Juno’s principal goal is to understand the origin and evolution of Jupiter. Underneath its dense cloud cover, Jupiter safeguards secrets to the fundamental processes and conditions that governed our solar system during its formation. As our primary example of a giant planet, Jupiter can also provide critical knowledge for understanding the planetary systems being discovered around other stars.
(The Collegiate Peaks Forum Series™ mission is to facilitate the intellectual enrichment of the Upper Arkansas Valley residents and their visitors by sponsoring FREE events featuring nationally recognized persons schooled in philosophy, spirituality or science and hosting other community discussion activities. (Check them out on their website www.collegiatepeaksforum.org.)
REMINDER ON NEED FOR WILDLIFE PHOTOS: the Forest Service has removed their photo display in the Red Rooster Visitor Center and we would like to replace it with local wildlife photos contributed by area residents. If you provide an 8×10 or 11, we will put it in a frame to display! Please reply firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a photo to share.
House Numbering for Emergencies: We contacted the Fire Chief and he strongly encourages anyone in the county without a green and white number sign identifying your home to get a reflective sign. Their program costs $10 per sign. The sign program coordinator is Lawrence Lovelace FF on C shift. If anyone wants to have a sign, please call the station number (719)486-2990, and one will be made for you. You can set up a time to pick it up. Chief Dailey reminds that “It is very important for us as first responders to know where to go during an emergency.”
