We are looking at star parties that have been arranged for May and October. In May, we will participate in “Super Science Saturday” which will occur during the day of May 3rd. As usual, volunteers will set up their telescopes on the concrete apron between the State Museum and the State Library. Maybe there will be a few sunspots! I’ll be sending out reminders and further details to you in the near future.
In October, we have been invited by the folks at the N. J. Audubon Society’s Plainsboro Preserve to set up telescopes during the evening of Friday, October 24 to allow children and their parents to view the heavens. The rain date is October 25. This date seemed to be good not only for them but for a new moon.
I have not heard from any school teachers yet this season, but we will probably get some invitations from schools such as Princeton Day School. We’ll see.
In the meantime I wish you clear skies!
