We’ll be having our “How to Use Your Telescope” class tonight, 1/4/08, at 7:30 p.m. at the Centennial Heritage Museum, even if it rains. So, if you have a telescope and want some help with it, bring it along! If you can come and help people learn to use their telescopes – we can use the help!

If it’s raining, we’ll meet inside the usual classroom for the Beginners Astronomy Class (the ground floor of the Carriage House); if it’s dry, we’ll meet in the parking area near the Carriage House. See you there!
