Attached are some shots from Sunday’s walk — a little stretch for the Snowy. Snowy was a first for me.

(Thanks, Joe — the Snowy photos give folks an idea of the distance involved, and a sense of places to look when looking for Snowies on Disposal Road.)


Observatory Schedule for March

IMG_5829The William D. McDowell Observatory in DeKorte Park has an exciting month of programming in March — beginning tonight.

Free public access is from 8 to 10 on Monday and Wednesday nights this month — weather permitting, of course.

Dress for the weather; with the dome open, you are basically outside.

Each evening at least two major objects in the night sky will be viewed, plus one or two other celestial objects or events depending on the observing conditions.
