Join us Wednesday December 21 at 5:30pm. Share a hotdog roast around the fire during our regular Wednesday night dinner time at 5:30, then enjoy hearing Bob King (or as he is known, Astro Bob) talk to us about the Solstice and the Christmas sky in the Fellowship Hall. Then we are off to the parking lot to view the winter sky through his telescope.
After our time with Astro Bob, those who would like may stay to watch our traditional viewing of the Northern Exposure episode, “Northern Lights”. (If you would like, bring some chocolate to share.) For real diehards, we will have an additional viewing of another great Northern Exposure episode.
Bob King is an amateur astronomer since childhood and long-time member of the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO), Bob King teaches community education astronomy, writes an astronomy column for the Duluth New Tribune, and blogs at astrobob.areavoices.com. Bob King is author of Night Sky with the Naked Eye.
