Welcome to the Wormhole - Ames Area Amature Astronomers window on the web

The Ames Area Amateur Astronomers is a dynamic organization with activities held year-round. Each month at our meeting we present a guest speaker, with exciting lectures about space and astronomy. 

  February 18th  Meeting

"The Michelson-Morley Experiment and LIGO's Detection of Gravitational Waves" by Sam Wormley - Do thoughts of special relativity and warped space-time make your head spin? Sam Wormley will join us this month to explain some of the technology used to study such things.  Specificially he will compare the interferometer used in Michelson-Morley Experiment of the 1880's and the LIGO interferometer used to detect gravitational waves in 2015 and 2016.
