CUAS is having virtual online Astronomy Open House
All virtual observing is on Saturdays from 7 till 8 P.M. CDT for the following dates;
May 15 ; June 19 ; July 17 ; August 14
The Champaign Urbana Astronomical Society CUAS is having virtual online Astronomy Open House observing every month this year. Due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic, they will be unable to have guests come to the observatory in person. They will be using a remote camera attached to a telescope to show you live pictures of some fascinating astronomical objects. Hopefully the clouds will stay away. Every month, a detailed description of the night sky will be given so that everyone can go outside and see for themselves what interesting objects can be viewed. These are also described at https://cuas.org/lookingup/ They will be showing some of the equipment their members use for their personal observing. Additional topics (like those at https://cuas.org/resources/) can be presented as time allows. After each session, you can register for raffle to win a free prize such as a telescope kit or astronomical calendar.
