I just found out that GMU offers informal night sky observations sessions open to the public! Tonight's session has been cancelled but this might be a fun event for those of us not attending Tardis Tuesdays!

That's a neat idea. But the problem with GMU is that parking anywhere on campus is expensive. I think last time I was there it cost $3 per hour or something for visitor parking.


That's a neat idea. Bu

Good point, Stacy.

Fairfax City has the CUE bus system which was originally designed just form GMU students. If people have time, they can park in the city (there's a free garage in historic downtown Fairfax) and take the bus for less than $2. Then we can cap off the evening with a pint at the Auld Shebeen afterward!
