The last of the free public star parties is scheduled for this Friday, September 15 with the rain date on the 16th.

This free event takes place in the main parking lot of the Carp Library starting at sunset. There is a link on my website at

I would also like to mention my crowdfunding campaign to rebuild a new observatory with the Gofundme link appearing on my website.

I am always available for an on-air interview.

Clear skies,
