Star Talk at the Blue Cottage
Sunday, September 17th. Starts after sunset, at 7:30pm. Please arrive after 7:00pm. On the 17th, the moon will be a small waxing crescent, so it will not interfere with star viewing!
Amateur Astronomer, James Roy will give a beginners guide to our local night sky. Explore the constellations and other heavenly notable things about our cosmos. Roy will bring some night sky viewing devices including a laser pointer that extends 5 miles, allowing him to point directly at specific stars. Bring a chair and binoculars if you have them. Dress for cooler evening fun.

We had a great turnout, silkscreening about 40 t-shirts in a frantic afternoon of fun.
This was such a blast we will definitely be doing it several times next summer.
Lead by artists and board member Terry Drahos.
