“Getting ready for Comet ISON”
A representative from The Rothney Astrophysical Observatory will come and speak to us about the discovery of comet C/2012 S1 (ISON). This comet, that is currently just beyond the orbit of Jupiter, has spent the last 13 months moving towards a near miss of the Sun which should occur in November of 2013. The current orbital calculations indicate it will come to within 2 million kilometers of the Sun (about 8 times the distance from earth to our moon) and then if it survives this passage will pass around to about half the distance between earth and the sun. One of my favorite websites about this Comet is www.jmccanneyscience.com Check it out for some good information.
This presentation will be enhanced and closely followed by:
Friday, October 11, Rothney Observatory, Priddis Road Trip
Night sky viewing at the Observatory. With luck and our focused intention, it will be a clear night, and we will once again have the use of the large telescopes at the Observatory to view the Comet and other fascinating objects in our Cosmos. In the sky will be Pegasus the winged horse followed by Andromeda the nearest galaxy to the Milky Way. The mighty Hercules and Aquarius will also be visible in the sky all under a waxing crescent moon. Additionally, we will be hunting the Comet ISON.
You MUST bring very warm warm warm clothes, blankets, lawn chairs, flashlights, cameras, telescopes, snacks, refreshments, dowsing tools, and whatever else you think you need. We spend most of the time outside and it is cold in the foothills! The telescopes are all exposed to the elements so dressing warm is necessary! Calgary Dowsers will be covering the cost of this evening, but there is a $20.00 fee per vehicle due to the Rothney Observatory paid by You, so if possible please car pool (to be arranged amongst yourselves). This is such a wonderful privilege; we need to make a large showing of enthusiastic people so we can do this again and again. Bring your family and friends – Please plan to come out and support this event. Scroll down for the map and directions. If it doesn’t come through – please google directions.

Our theme for 2013 is:
Intention (World Peace) + Visualization (World Peace) = Creation of World Peace!
We are still the best deal in the City. We offer you informed and effective speakers, opportunity to practice your dowsing, opportunity to learn dowsing, opportunity to visit with and discuss dowsing with fellow dowsers. Discounts on national Questers Dowsing conferences. At our monthly meetings you have the opportunity to express yourself and hear the latest information on a wide and diverse variety of esoteric topics. We don’t only talk about Dowsing, but recognize that when we are working with the universal laws we are dealing with many diverse subjects. We are a group of energetically powerful people who practice and support others who practice the healing arts, we are a group of people who enjoy the opportunity to get together monthly and who are sharing in the cost of doing so. We are a group of people with whom you can discuss all matter of “different” topics, which are usually not spoken about in regular circles. We are a group of people with whom you can share your experiences in the adventurous world of the divine. To us it is all OK. Calgary Dowsers is worthwhile for a very small investment of time and money which yields you a large return. Come out and join us! You will be welcomed.
Please plan to attend and assist in the ongoing success of this wonderful group of energetically powerful people. Even if you are not a member (yet) you are very welcome to attend!
