"Where the Community Connects"

Backyard Astronomy: Scanning March Skies Using the New Library Telescope!

Please plan to attend this family friendly PowerPoint presentation to learn how to use the new Library Telescope to observe objects from your own backyard using a technique called star hopping and see how easy it is to use!

This telescope, donated to the Ames Free Library by the Avery Lee Williams Family Trust, will be maintained by the Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc. as part of their Library Telescope Program.

Spacey door prizes will be offered for children, along with outside viewing for all, weather permitting.

Free and open to all!
