Local amateur astronomers will be featured at the September meeting of the St. Louis Astronomical Society. The meeting will begin at 7:30 PM Friday, September 15, in McDonnell Hall, Room 162, on the Washington University campus, Saint Louis, MO 63130. McDonnell Hall is accessible from Forsyth Boulevard via Tolman Way.  Yellow zone and garage parking are available. The event, cosponsored by NASA's Missouri Space Grant Consortium, is open to the public free of charge.

The Great American Eclipse of August 21 was seen by millions across the country and hundreds of thousands across the Greater St. Louis area. Members of the St. Louis Astronomical Society will discuss the event and present images taken from various sites along the eclipse path. New and used solar eclipse glasses will be sent to schools in South America and Asia for student viewing of 2019 eclipses. These eclipses will not be visible from the U.S. The public is invited to donate ISO-approved glasses in good condition. Collection points – the McDonnell Planetarium in Forest Park and branches of many area libraries – will be mentioned. A complete list can be found at .
