Public Night At Curby For June 16, 2018 Is A Go

Fri, June 15, 2018 9:10 AM | Ron Yates

Checking the clear sky sites and the forceast, it appears that we have a good chance of having decent skies for our scheduled public night at our Curby dark sky site (aka James G. Baker center for Astronomy) tomorrow, Saturday, June 16, 2018. As such, I am giving a go for the event. I believe I saw one of the email notices list the event as starting at 6:00 P.M. Not sure why it was listed as starting that early, but if you want to come at that time, we can set up a solar scope for people to peer through. Normally, it would start at 8:00 with a presentation inside the Multipurpose building, followed by observing on the field and in the observatory. Observation starts just after sunset.

The event is open to the public, but is also a good opportunity for new members to see their dark sky site and view through the observatory telescopes, to set up telescopes in the observing field, or to bring your telescope and ask our experienced members questions you may have about your equipment, or observing in general.

Members, we can use a few scopes in the field for this event.

See you there.

Ron Yates
