STAR PARTY!
Friday night, 7:45 sharp at the Powell Observatory in Louisburg, KS

Tonight is our optimal deadline for food signup.  We have 28 people signed up (7 spaces left), but not all 28 have signed up for food yet.  We especially need meat dishes and casseroles.  (If you can't cook, you can pick up something from the grocer's deli area.)  Email me (Fred Heeren:  [address removed]) to tell me what you'll
bring to fill in what's still missing from the potluck food list below.  

PRESENTATION:  We'll get a chance to learn some cosmology along with astronomy with a 20-30 minute PowerPoint presentation by Tim Kristl.
 
PLUS DISCUSSION:  Bring it on: Plenty of opportunity for YOUR QUESTIONS about astronomy/cosmology and answers by the experts.

EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT HOW THE UNIVERSE, THE GALAXIES, AND THE STARS GOT TO BE WHAT THEY ARE.
10 - 15 AMATEUR ASTRONOMERS AS GUIDES:  They'll each have their telescopes on hand, pointed in different directions to show you everything they can in the time we have.  They love your questions.  Plus the big 30-inch under the dome.  We'll have even more to see than we did last time.

PLAY:  Bring a frisbee, a football, a softball, whatever outdoor game-stuff you like.  We'll have a short time for this while it's still light between supper and the presentation inside.

CONVERSATION & FOOD!  You just need to bring some food as your ticket to come.  Email me (Fred Heeren:  [address removed]) and let me know what you can bring to fill in the list below.  

And don't forget to RSVP to give us an accurate count at:  http://www.meetup.com/ProvocateursAndPeacemakers/events/64409172/

See our universe through the telescopes for yourself.
Powell Observatory:  10297 W. 263rd St. / Louisburg, KS 66053
Map & Directions:
http://alturl.com/xfrf7 And :http://askc.org/images/powell_map.jpg
Take US-69 South to 247th St. exit.  Turn left.  Take first right onto Metcalf Rd.  About 4 minutes to: W. 263rd Street (turn right).  Take for 3 minutes and stay right on W. 263rd. Powell Observatory (with the dome) will be on the right.

Details: We'll get to use the whole observatory for the night - it has a 30-inch telescope and there's another 16-inch in an outside shed.
Bring your own telescope or binoculars if you have them.  You can set them up on the outside and offer more objects to view.
There may be other amateur astronomers with their own 8-, 10- and 12-inch telescopes and they normally are more than happy to share with you what they are looking at.
They have a room that will seat 30 or so people.  Tim Kristl and Iggy will lead us through a presentation with Q&A before it gets dark.  If you have a specific object in the skies you'd be interested in, email us and we'll ask it to be located.
RSVP to help us plan!  Last time we had over 40 people attending and we want to be better prepared this time.
