Rain or Shine! Come rotate the dome, and if the weather clears, which it looks like it will we will be looking through the 16″ telescope. There will also be other smaller telescopes and giant binoculars. So come on by.
We’ve also had a lot of astronomy events last week. Our thanks to Dr. Brian Field who packed the house with 88 people for last Thursday’s IYA talk, “When Stars Attack” . Last Friday we had the faculty appreciation picnic and afterword, we opeded up the dome and had 98 faculty and staff, with their families, look at the majesty of Jupiter.
