The target date is the 17th but if necessary due to weather it may be bumped to the 18th, or even later.  The event is free and open to Boy Scouts in middle school or older with an interest in astronomy or the night sky. The program will begin promptly at 7 p.m.  Attendees should plan on arriving not later than 6:45.  There will be an introduction to observing the night sky, a constellation tour and viewing through scopes and binoculars.  The program will conclude by 9:30 p.m. Attendance is limited to 36 scouts – parents and leaders welcome but there may not be room for everyone in the indoor program.  You must register to attend.  You register below by subscribing to the event newsletter.
