Time To Celebrate Five Birthdays At Once on 7/28/2019 At The Santa Ana Elks 

To The Jam Session And Birthday Parties

We are celebrating five birthdays! August seems to be quite popular! You must read on to find out who has made it another year! We did the math and all five of the "birthday people" added together are 348 years old!

Did You Know? - 348 years ago Père Dom Anthelme, in 1670, saw a star suddenly burst into view near the head of the constellation Cygnus, the Swan. The object was visible with the naked eye for two years, as it flared in the sky repeatedly. Then it went dark. CK Vulpeculae (also Nova Vulpeculae 1670) is the oldest reliably-documented nova. It consists of a compact central object surrounded by a bipolar nebula.
