We'll have a couple telescopes out tonight in Monrovia from 6:30 - 8:30
or so. On display will be the 13-day moon (nearly full) and Jupiter.
Stop by if you're in the neighborhood.
Also, we now have a date for our twice-annual Mojave National Preserve
Star party - May 6. Though this flyer is for last fall's event, you
can get a feel for the event, and can RSVP if you'd like to attend.
Free camping, bring something for saturday night potluck. You might
want a chair to sit in and gaze at the night sky.
Free camping, unlimited stargazing, Comet Pan-STARRS (our March comet)
should still be visible.
Weather permitting, Mojo and I are planning dark sky observing outings
to Amboy Crater March 9 and April 6. Amboy Crater is not a campsite -
it's a large parking lot, and we usually snooze in our car a little
after observing, and sometimes take a hike to the crater in the morning.
If you are interesting in joining us, sent me an email!
