Boy Scouts Astronomy Merit Badge Star Party – February 17, 2017

This event has been continued due to weather and is currently awaiting a new date and time.

This is a special evening star party to be held at the Society’s River Ridge Observing site north of Lake Maumelle, near Little Italy AR, about 40 minutes west-northwest of Little Rock. It is a free event open to Boy Scouts in middle school or older.  The program will begin promptly at 7:00 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 finally viewing through telescopes and binoculars, all leading to qualification for the astronomy merit badge.
