    Join us after the Monthly Skies over Louisville program at the UofL Rauch Planetarium.

    We will set up in the courtyard and let you see views of the night sky. It is also a good time to see the different types of telescopes and binoculars you can use to enjoy the night sky.

    We look forward to seeing you there.

Baker Center for Astronomy Saturday in Curby, Indiana, one hour away. Directions are on the website. Rain or shine.. Tonight we can observe the First Quarter Moon.

    Members may arrive early for set-up. If the ground is wet, we will set-up behind the building on the asphalt. Scope set-up is weather dependent. Our scopes are unable to penetrate the clouds and heavy moisture such as rain drops are bad for the electronics.
