No, the Universe is not expanding at an accelerated rate, say physicists 10/24/2016

"Back in 2011, three astronomers (Saul Perlmutter from the University of California, Berkeley; Adam Riess from Johns Hopkins University; and Brian Schmidt from the Australian National University) were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for their discovery that the Universe wasn’t just expanding - it was expanding at an accelerating rate."
"Instead of finding evidence to support the accelerated expansion of the Universe, (lead researcher, Subir Sarkar, from the University of Oxford) and his team say it looks like the Universe is expanding at a constant rate. If that's truly the case, it means we don't need dark energy to explain it."

Orionid meteor shower peak tonight! | EarthSky.org 10/21/2016

"Tonight – October 20, 2016 – is the probable peak night of the annual Orionid meteor shower. The meteors should become visible, starting at late evening on October 20, but will probably be most prolific in the few hours before dawn on October 21. From a dark site, you might see a maximum of about 10 to 15 meteors per hour, although the moonlit glare will prove troublesome this year."

Astronomy is more than just looking at the stars! It's more than just staring into the abyss and having the abyss stare back at you! Volunteering your time to help sustain and improve the Murillo Family observatory has many benifits: gaining/improving skills in astronomy, applied physics, mathematics, electrical engineering, compuer engineering, computer programing/coding, networking, volunteering hours, and becoming apart of community that extends beyond the stars!
