Free Astronomy Program at Hobbs State Park Features Jupiter and “Retrograde Motion”

We all know that Jupiter is a planet, but what is “retrograde motion”? This is how Katherine Auld, President of the Sugar Creek Astronomical Society, explains it. “Perfectly positioned for observing all month, very bright Jupiter moves retrograde through the body of the constellation Virgo in the southern evening sky. Retrograde motion happens because earth, on its shorter race track path around the sun, is passing Jupiter on its longer track, and making Jupiter appear to move backwards against the backdrop of stars. Jupiter will remain about 10 degrees above Virgo’s brightest star, Spica. The shadows of Jupiter’s four Galilean moons frequently cross the planet’s disk this month, including a number of double shadow events. Because Jupiter is high in the night sky, it makes a nice sight using binoculars, and a nice photo opportunity as well.”

Auld further stated, “This should be a great night for observing with a telescope, binoculars, or just using your unaided eyes! We will have several telescopes set up looking at Jupiter and various other deep sky objects. By the nature of stellar observation, these objects will move through the evening, so viewing opportunities will be plentiful. As always, everyone is invited: all ages are encouraged. Items to bring with you include a flashlight (covered with a red cloth or balloon), binoculars, water bottle, and a folding chair. A basket of children’s books will be provided along with balloon-covered flashlights for reading under the stars.”

Where: Hobbs State Park visitor center located on Hwy 12 just east of the
Hwy 12/War Eagle Road intersection.
When: Saturday May 27, 2017
Time: Lecture begins at 7:45 pm with night sky viewing at 8:45 pm

Every Saturday May 6 – October 28, 2017 | 8am to 1pm | Vendor List

The City of Rogers purchased an auto repair shop in 2015 on Cherry Street, and has renovated the space to be home to the new Downtown Rogers Farmers Market, managed by Main Street Rogers. The market opened April 30th of 2016, the market opened with over 40 vendors in drive-up bays. The indoor-outdoor facility is very unique and vendor friendly, and is expected to attract some of the best vendors from Northwest Arkansas to sell their goods.

The new market will not only be a place for farmers to have a permanent home to sell their goods, but also a gathering place for the community with space for food trucks and access to the Razorback Greenway trails which goes through the market itself and continues down to the new Railyard Bike Park.  Families will now be able to ride their bikes to the market together, shop the market, dine together, and enjoy the activities of a revitalizing and growing Downtown Rogers district.

Feature Film: Cherokee Word For Water
Based on the true story of the Bell Waterline Project, this feature film is set in the early 1980s in a rural Oklahoma Cherokee community where many houses lacked running water. Led by Wilma Mankiller (played by Kimberly Guerrero, A&E’s “Longmire”) and Cherokee organizer Charlie Soap (played by Mo Brings Plenty, Netflix’s “House of Cards”), the community of volunteers built nearly 20 miles of waterline to save their community. The successful completion of the waterline, using the traditional concept of gadugi – working together to solve a problem – led to Wilma’s election as Chief. Wilma and Charlie’s work sparked a movement of similar projects across the Cherokee Nation and in Indian Country that continues to this day. In April 2014, the film won the Western Heritage Award for Best Theatrical Motion Picture at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

The Native American Cultural Symposium is sponsored by the Museum of Native American History, Downtown Bentonville Inc., Visit Bentonville, KUAF 91.3, Arkansas CW, Osiyo TV, RUNWAY-Moving Arkansas Forward, Tribal Voices, Comfort Inn, Tribal TV, Red Feather Productions, WGW Marketing, River Grille Steakhouse, Dymark Sign and Display.
