Space Place is an outreach program of UW's Astronomy department and Friday night's event is part of their "Star Gazing" program. Dr. Jim Lattis will give a brief introduction on what we should be looking for in all that blackness, after which we will retire to the roof to see what is out there. (Lots and lots, I suspect.)
Space Place will be setting up telescopes, but if you own a telescope, I encourage you to bring it. *In preparation for our future night-time, star-gazing picnic at Indian Lake (not yet scheduled), it might be a good idea to get some advice on how to get the most out of your telescope.*
The talk begins at 8pm, so let's gather a bit before that. I've never been here before - if anyone else has, maybe you can suggest a good place to meet.
